Fairlight / Event-System


Fairlight provides a powerful and flexible yet easy-to-use Event-System. Various Interfaces can be implemented to listen to specific Events. The associated callback-methods can be used to add your custom behavior code.

You can add multiple EventHandlers to the EventManager. When you use the EventManager to register components he will take care of adding them to all related EventHandlers. The EventManager is also used to fire (custom) Events.
