C# Constructor

Sep 12, 2016 at 8:58 AM

I have two class definitions in c# like this:
public class Foo
    public Foobar(int x)
public class Bar : Foo
    public Bar(int x) : base(x)
Now I would like to make the constructors available to the JavaScript Engine. However, not as global functions but as functions of some object. Something like this:
var engine = new V8ScriptEngine( name, flags, debugPort );
engine.Script.SomeObject.Foo = engine.CompileConstructor(typeof(Foo));
engine.Script.SomeObject.Bar = engine.CompileConstructor(typeof(Bar));
Is there a way to accomplish this? Any chance that this would even work with JavaScript's instanceof operator?

Hi ZoneRunner,

There are several ways to do this. One is to use ClearScript's ExtendedHostFunctions class:
var xHost = new ExtendedHostFunctions();
engine.Script.SomeObject.Foo = xHost.type(typeof(Foo));
engine.Script.SomeObject.Bar = xHost.type(typeof(Bar));
engine.Execute("bar = new SomeObject.Bar(123)");
You can't use instanceof to examine a host object's type information. If that's a requirement, consider defining native JavaScript types that wrap your host types as necessary.

Good luck!
