How to make UIBlockButton suit with ARC?


I am using the UIBlockButton code from <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3908003/uibutton-block-equivalent-to-addtargetactionforcontrolevents-method" rel="nofollow">this post</a>:

typedef void (^ActionBlock)(); @interface UIBlockButton : UIButton { ActionBlock _actionBlock; } -(void) handleControlEvent:(UIControlEvents)event withBlock:(ActionBlock) action; @implementation UIBlockButton -(void) handleControlEvent:(UIControlEvents)event withBlock:(ActionBlock) action { _actionBlock = Block_copy(action); [self addTarget:self action:@selector(callActionBlock:) forControlEvents:event]; } -(void) callActionBlock:(id)sender{ _actionBlock(); } -(void) dealloc{ Block_release(_actionBlock); [super dealloc]; } @end

but I changed my code to under ARC, how to change the code to make sure everything works well?



@interface UIBlockButton : UIButton - (void) handleControlEvent: (UIControlEvents) event withBlock: (dispatch_block_t) action; @end


@interface UIBlockButton () @property(copy) dispatch_block_t actionBlock; @end @implementation UIBlockButton @synthesize actionBlock; - (void) handleControlEvent: (UIControlEvents) event withBlock: (dispatch_block_t) action { [self setActionBlock:action]; [self addTarget:self action:@selector(callActionBlock:) forControlEvents:event]; } - (void) callActionBlock: (id) sender { if (actionBlock) actionBlock(); } @end

But note that multiple calls to handleControlEvent:withBlock: will overwrite your block, you can’t have different actions for different events with this implementation. Also, you should probably use a different prefix for the class instead of UI to prevent potential clashes with Apple’s code.
