\name{exprToFunction}
\alias{exprToFunction}
\title{Convert an expression to a function}
\usage{
exprToFunction(expr, env = parent.frame(), quoted = FALSE)
}
\arguments{
\item{expr}{A quoted or unquoted expression, or a function.}
\item{env}{The desired environment for the function. Defaults to the
calling environment two steps back.}
\item{quoted}{Is the expression quoted?}
}
\description{
This is to be called from another function, because it will attempt to get
an unquoted expression from two calls back.
}
\details{
If expr is a quoted expression, then this just converts it to a function.
If expr is a function, then this simply returns expr (and prints a
deprecation message).
If expr was a non-quoted expression from two calls back, then this will
quote the original expression and convert it to a function.
}
\examples{
# Example of a new renderer, similar to renderText
# This is something that toolkit authors will do
renderTriple <- function(expr, env=parent.frame(), quoted=FALSE) {
# Convert expr to a function
func <- shiny::exprToFunction(expr, env, quoted)
function() {
value <- func()
paste(rep(value, 3), collapse=", ")
}
}
# Example of using the renderer.
# This is something that app authors will do.
values <- reactiveValues(A="text")
\dontrun{
# Create an output object
output$tripleA <- renderTriple({
values$A
})
}
# At the R console, you can experiment with the renderer using isolate()
tripleA <- renderTriple({
values$A
})
isolate(tripleA())
# "text, text, text"
