Class EventListenerComparator

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class EventListenerComparator
    extends Object
    implements Comparator<EventListener>
    Compares two event listeners to determine the order in which they should be invoked when an event is dispatched. The lower the order, the sooner it will be invoked (the higher its precedence). The higher the order, the later it will be invoked (the lower its precedence).

    TypedEventListeners have a higher precedence (i.e. a lower order) than standard EventListener instances. Standard EventListener instances have the same order priority.

    When both objects being compared are TypedEventListeners, they are ordered according to the rules of the EventClassComparator, using the TypedEventListeners' eventType.
