Hi, I'm new to this and english isn't my first language so sorry if the answer is posted before - I just don't know what to search for.

So insted of explaining i'll just show an example and you'll probably know what I mean.

I have a couple of classes (Shopspage and Eventspage) that extends Basicpage.
I would like both of them to have a BAsicpageMediator.
This works I think:
mediatorMap.mapView(Shopspage, BasicpageMediator, Basicpage); mediatorMap.mapView(Eventspage, BasicpageMediator, Basicpage); ..but I can't do: ´
mediatorMap.mapView(Basicpage, BasicpageMediator);
´ that each page that extends Basicpage gets a BasicpageMediator.

Is there a way to do this so I won't have to map every single page that extends Basicpage (in the event I have A LOT of pages)

    Sorry, manual mapping each of those views is probably the only way to go with "out of the box" Robotlegs.

    This is because the mediator mappings make use of the fully qualified class names to map mediators to views. Since view sub-classes have unique class names, they are not automatically associated with the same mediators as their parents in the class hierarchy.

    It might be a neat convenience utility to have a sub-class-matching-capable MediatorMap, though it would be relatively performance-expensive in its "check to see what mediator to create, if any, for this view" code.

    You can use the ViewInterfaceMediatorMap utility from piercer:

    It enables you to map an interface to a mediator. This also works with inheriting interfaces. It works like a charm and I REALLY hope it makes it into the core of the next RL release.

    Slightly off-topic: somehow I assumed ZackPierce == piercer (github user). True? :)
