What would you like to do?
To work around rdar://19810773, I need a helper that can filter multiple calls to the same method during the same runloop. This is my first attempt on it.
/// Performs `block` immediately and ignores subsequent calls during the same runloop.
#define pspdf_ensureCalledOnlyOncePerRunloop(block) do { \
static const char __onceKey; _pspdf_ensureCalledOnlyOncePerRunloop(self, &__onceKey, block); } while(0)
extern void _pspdf_ensureCalledOnlyOncePerRunloop(id self, const void *key, dispatch_block_t block);
void _pspdf_ensureCalledOnlyOncePerRunloop(id self, const void *key, dispatch_block_t block) {
PSPDFAssertOnMainThread(); // run loop needs the main thread.
BOOL hasBeenCalled = [objc_getAssociatedObject(self, key) boolValue];
if (!hasBeenCalled) {
objc_setAssociatedObject(self, key, @YES, OBJC_ASSOCIATION_RETAIN_NONATOMIC);
// clean object in the next runloop
dispatch_async(dispatch_get_main_queue(), ^{
objc_setAssociatedObject(self, key, nil, OBJC_ASSOCIATION_ASSIGN);
// Usage:
- (void)willRotateToInterfaceOrientation:(UIInterfaceOrientation)toInterfaceOrientation duration:(NSTimeInterval)duration {
[super willRotateToInterfaceOrientation:toInterfaceOrientation duration:duration];
