HTML::Mason::Component::Subcomponent - Mason Subcomponent Class


This is a subclass of HTML::Mason::Component. Mason uses it to implement both subcomponents (defined by <%def>) and methods (defined by <%method>).

A subcomponent/method gets most of its properties from its owner. Note that the link from the subcomponent to its owner is a weak reference (to prevent circular references), so if you grab a subcomponent/method object, you should also grab and hold a reference to its owner. If the owner goes out of scope, the subcomponent/method object will become unusable.



Returns 1 if this is a method (declared by <%method>), 0 if it is a subcomponent (defined by c<< <%def> >>).


Returns the component object within which this subcomponent or method was defined.
