class TVirtualBranchBrowsable: public TNamed

 TVirtualBranchBrowsable is a base class (not really abstract, but useless
 by itself) for helper objects that extend TBranch's browsing support.
 Each registered derived class's generator method is called, which fills
 all created helper objects into a list which can then be browsed.
 For details of what these browser helper objects can do, see e.g.
 TMethodBrowsable, which allows methods to show up in the TBrowser.

 Only registered helper objects are created. By default, only
 TMethodBrowsable, TNonSplitBrowsable, and TCollectionPropertyBrowsable
 are registered (see RegisterDefaultGenerators). You can prevent any of
 their objects to show up in the browser by unregistering the generator:
 will stop creating browsable method helper objects from that call on.
 Note that these helper objects are cached (in TBranch::fBrowsables);
 already created (and thus cached) browsables will still appear in the
 browser even after unregistering the corresponding generator.

 You can implement your own browsable objects and thier generator; see
 e.g. the simple TCollectionPropertyBrowsable. Note that you will have
 to register your generator just like any other, and that you should
 implement the following methods for your own class, mainly for
 consistency reasons:
   static void Register() {
     TVirtualBranchBrowsable::RegisterGenerator(GetBrowsables); }
   static void Unregister() {
     TVirtualBranchBrowsable::UnregisterGenerator(GetBrowsables); }
 where GetBrowsables is a static member function of your class, that
 creates the browsable helper objects, and has the signature
   static Int_t GetBrowsables(TList& list, const TBranch* branch,
                              const TVirtualBranchBrowsable* parent=0);
 It has to return the number of browsable helper objects for parent
 (or, if NULL, for branch) which are added to the list.

Function documentation

TVirtualBranchBrowsable(const TBranch* b, TClass* type, Bool_t typeIsPointer, const TVirtualBranchBrowsable* parent = 0)
 constructor setting all members according to parameters.
 Destructor. Delete our leaves.
void Browse(TBrowser* b)
 Calls TTree::Draw on the method if return type is not a class;
 otherwise expands returned object's "folder"
Int_t FillListOfBrowsables(TList& list, const TBranch* branch, const TVirtualBranchBrowsable* parent = 0)
 Askes all registered generators to fill their browsables into
 the list. The browsables are generated for a given parent,
 or (if 0), for a given branch. The branch is passed down to
 leaves of TVirtualBranchBrowsable, too, as we need to access
 the branch's TTree to be able to traw.
TClass* GetCollectionContainedType(const TBranch* b, const TVirtualBranchBrowsable* parent, TClass*& contained)
 Check whether the branch (or the parent) contains a collection.
 If it does, set "contained" to the contained type (if we can
 retrieve it) and return the TClass for the collection. Set
 "contained" to the branch's (or parent's) contained object's
 class for non-collections, returning 0.

 Only one of "branch" or "parent" can ge given (depending on whether
 we are creating browsable objects for a branch or for another
 browsable object)
TList* GetLeaves()
 Return list of leaves. If not set up yet we'll create them.
void GetScope(TString& scope) const
 Returns the full name for TTree::Draw to draw *this.
 Recursively appends, starting at the top TBranch,
 all method / object names with proper reference operators (->, .)
 depending on fTypeIsPointer.
void RegisterDefaultGenerators()
 Adds the default generators. The user can remove any of them as follows:
 which will cause the browser not to show any methods.
void RegisterGenerator(TVirtualBranchBrowsable::MethodCreateListOfBrowsables_t generator)
 Adds a generator to be called when browsing branches.
 Called by the Register method, which should be implemented
 for all derived classes (see e.g. TMethodBrowsable::Register())
void UnregisterGenerator(TVirtualBranchBrowsable::MethodCreateListOfBrowsables_t generator)
 Removes a generator from the list of generators to be called when
 browsing branches. The user can remove any of the generators as follows:
 which will cause the browser not to show any methods.
const char * GetIconName()
 return icon shown when browsing a TVirtualBranchBrowsable
Bool_t IsFolder()
 check whether we have sub-elements
const TBranch* GetBranch()
 return the parent branch (might be many levels up)
const TVirtualBranchBrowsable* GetParent()
 return the parent TVirtualBranchBrowsable
TClass* GetClassType()
 return the type of this browsable object
Bool_t TypeIsPointer()
 return whether the type of this browsable object is a pointer
TVirtualBranchBrowsable(const TBranch* b, TClass* type, Bool_t typeIsPointer, const TVirtualBranchBrowsable* parent = 0)
 static void Register()   has to be implemented for all derived classes!
 static void Unregister() has to be implemented for all derived classes!
std::list<MethodCreateListOfBrowsables_t>& GetRegisteredGenerators()
void SetType(TClass* type)
 sets the type of this browsable object
void SetTypeIsPointer(Bool_t set = kTRUE)
 sets whether the type of this browsable object is a pointer
