GB.CurrentComponent

char *GB.CurrentComponent ( void )

This function returns the name of the current component.

The current component is the component where the current class executed by the interpreter was declared. It is always a component written in Gambas!

If there is no current component, i.e. if the current executed class is part of the project, then a void string is returned.

Use this function if you need to store some data depending on the component. For example, the Picture class uses this feature to have one Picture cache by component.
