=head1 METHODS

=head2 push_viewport $vp_class, %args

Creates a new instance of the L<Reaction::UI::ViewPort> class
($vp_class) using the rest of the arguments given (%args). Defaults of
the action can be overridden by using the C<ViewPort> key in the
controller configuration. For example to override the default number
of items in a CRUD list action:

                    action => {
                        list => { ViewPort => { per_page => 50 } },

The ViewPort is added to the L<Reaction::UI::Window>'s FocusStack in
the stash, and also returned to the calling code.

=head2 pop_viewport

=head2 pop_viewport_to $vp

Call L<Reaction::UI::FocusStack/pop_viewport> or
L<Reaction::UI::FocusStack/pop_viewport_to> on
the C<< $c->stash->{focus_stack} >>.

=head2 redirect_to $c, $to, $captures, $args, $attrs

Construct a URI and redirect to it.

$to can be:


=item The name of an action in the current controller.

=item A L<Catalyst::Action> instance.

=item An arrayref of controller name and the name of an action in that


$captures and $args default to the current requests $captures and
$args if not supplied.

=head2 make_context_closure

The purpose of this method is to prevent memory leaks.
It weakens the context object, often denoted $c, and passes it as the
first argument to the sub{} that is passed to the make_context_closure method.
In other words,

=over 4

make_context_closure returns sub { $sub_you_gave_it->($weak_c, @_)


To further expound up this useful construct consider code written before
make_context_closure was created:

    on_apply_callback =>
        sub {
          $self->after_search( $c, @_ );

This could be rewritten as:

    on_apply_callback => $self->make_context_closure(
        sub {
            my $weak_c = shift;
            $self->after_search( $weak_c, @_ );

Or even more succintly:

    on_apply_callback => $self->make_context_closure(
        sub {
            $self->after_search( @_ );
