Registers a data packet reader using a specific format for TBufDataset


Source position: bufdataset.pas line 705

procedure RegisterDatapacketReader(

  ADatapacketReaderClass: TDatapacketReaderClass;

  AFormat: TDataPacketFormat





Class type used to read data packets in the specified format



Data packet format used in the reader class type


RegisterDatapacketReader is a procedure which registers a class type needed to create data packet readers for a specific format. ADatapacketReaderClass is the class type used to create new instances of TDataPacketReader. AFormat is a TDataPacketFormat enumeration value that indicates the format supported for data packets in the reader class.

RegisterDatapacketReader accesses a unit variable used to store an array of registered data packet reader classes and their associated formats. RegisterDatapacketReader increments the size of the array variable, and stores the values in ADatapacketReaderClass and AFormat in the TDatapacketReaderRegistration type. It does not perform any checks for duplicate entries, so the procedure should be called exactly once for the class type and format combination.

RegisterDatapacketReader is normally used in the initialization section of a unit that implements a TDataPacketReader descendant for a specific storage format, such as: xmldatapacketreader.pp.
