Comment on "Lazy Loading of KVO Observed Properties"

Would this be appropriate? Let something else manage the lazily loaded resources and let it notify us when they're ready for assignment.

Note - I may have misunderstood your problem: Are you in fact looking for a way to avoid doing it this way?

-(NSImage*)image { if (image == nil) { // NSURL-style async handling of resources. // TTAppRez knows to ignores us if the request is (pending|ready). // will call [self RezResourceDidFinishLoading:] when ready. NSString* path = @""; [TTAppRez loadResourceDataAt:path notifyingClient:self usingCache:YES]; } return image; } -(void)setImage:(NSImage*)newImage { NSImage* oldImage = image; image = [newImage retain]; [oldImage release]; } #pragma Resource Callbacks - (void)RezResourceDidFinishLoading:(TTAppRez *)sender { if ([self image] == nil) { NSImage* theImage = [[NSImage alloc] initWithData: [sender resourceDataUsingCache:YES]]; [self setImage:theImage]; [theImage release]; } }
