Attribute Macro topo::nested[][src]

Expand description

Gives a function a unique CallId in its caller’s topology by applying #[track_caller] to the function and wrapping its body in call or call_in_slot if the slot parameter is given.

fn widget() -> topo::CallId {

// each call to the nested function gets a unique CallId in its parent's scope
assert_ne!(widget(), widget());

// nesting can be overridden by giving the function its own root
assert_eq!(topo::root(widget), topo::root(widget));


By default, #[nested] functions use for their slot the number of times the current source location has been called during the span of the current CallId. It is the behavior offered by the call shorthand.

To override the slot of a nested function, use the slot parameter, which is then passed directly as the first argument to call_in_slot:

#[topo::nested(slot = "name")]
fn get_name_id(name: &str, _value: &str) -> topo::CallId {

// reusing the same slot will get the same CallId
let bob = get_name_id("bob", "hello");
let bob_again = get_name_id("bob", "hello");
assert_eq!(bob, bob_again);

// the same name in a nested call returns a *new* CallId
let bob_nested = topo::call(|| get_name_id("bob", "hello"));
assert_ne!(bob, bob_nested);

// different names produce different slots, even when other args are the same
let alice_hello = get_name_id("alice", "hello");
assert_ne!(bob, alice_hello);

// changing non-slot arguments doesn't affect the CallId produced
let alice_goodbye = get_name_id("alice", "goodbye");
assert_eq!(alice_hello, alice_goodbye);

See call_in_slot and CallId’s documentation for more information on how slots are used.
