Detailed Description

The base class for all messages.

gf::Message is the base class for all the messages that are sent to a message manager. A message must derive from this class and define a static unique type.

Here is an example for defining a new message type:

struct HeroPosition : public gf::Message {
static const Id type = "HeroPosition"_id; // compile-time definition
gf::Vector2f position;
