      • getChangeSupport

        public ChangeSupport getChangeSupport​(ChangeType ct)
        Description copied from class: AbstractChangeable
        Called to retrieve the ChangeSupport for this object.

        Your implementation of this method should have the following structure:

         ChangeSupport cs = super.getChangeSupport(ct);
         if(someForwarder == null && ct.isMatching(SomeInterface.SomeChangeType)) {
           someForwarder = new ChangeForwarder(...
           this.stateVariable.addChangeListener(someForwarder, VariableInterface.AChange);
         return cs;
        It is usual for the forwarding listeners (someForwarder in this example) to be transient and lazily instantiated. Be sure to register & unregister the forwarder in the code that does the ChangeEvent handling in setter methods.
