Cocos2d-x transition class adapter that allows one to pop scene with a transition non-intrusively
#include <type_traits>
#include <cocos2d.h>
#pragma once
/// Transition adapter that pops current scene with transition passed as an argument.
/// Example:
/// Instead of calling cocos2d::Director::getInstance()->popScene() just call:
/// cocos2d::Director::getInstance()->pushScene(
/// pop_scene_with<cocos2d::TransitionFlipX>::create(1.0f, cocos2d::TransitionScene::Orientation::LEFT_OVER)
/// );
/// Note that there is no typical 2nd argument taking the scene for the transition,
/// one simply passes all the arguments they would pass to the transition's create
/// method except for the 2nd argument carrying the scene.
template <typename Transition>
struct pop_scene_with : Transition
static_assert(std::is_base_of<cocos2d::TransitionScene, Transition>::value, "Type argument must be a class derived from cocos2d::TransitionScene");
/// A helper class to access protected member of a director we need
struct DirectorAccessor : cocos2d::Director
/// Returns the scene that is previous to the current scene.
cocos2d::Scene* getPreviousScene() const
assert(_scenesStack.size() > 1); // Top is current scene and the user is asking for previous, which must exist
return - 2);
/// Catch the end of the transition to pop the actual scene
virtual void onExit() override
cocos2d::Director::getInstance()->popScene(); // Pop the replica of the previous scene we pushed
cocos2d::Director::getInstance()->popScene(); // Pop the scene we were actually trying to pop
/// Creator of the scene popper.
