    like the `Login panel`,when I was login,I don't need it after login,
    what's the right way to destroy the view `Login panel` ?
    I know Mediator has a function named `destroy()`,but how to destroy Mediator's view? just use `contextView.removeClild(someMediator.view)` ?

    what's the right way to destroy the view Login panel?

    The usual way to destroy a view is to let the parent of that view remove it from stage.

    In your case, let’s say that the parent view is MainView mapped to MainMediator.
    MainView has 2 methods, addLoginView() and removeLoginView().
    In addLoginView() you add LoginView to the stage. LoginMediator will be created automatically.

    MainMediator adds a listener for a context event, say LoginEvent.LOGIN_SUCCESSFUL, dispatched by a LoginService, and in its handler method it accesses MainView’s API, removeLoginView(), where the view itself removes its child from the stage. When LoginView gets removed from stage, its mediator, LoginMediator, will be removed as well.

    Does this answer your question?

    thank you Ondina D.F.

    I just write this in Mediator when the view need remove

    this.view = null;

    I think this is the way with your suggestion

    You should not call destroy() manually. It will be invoked automatically when the mediator is destroyed (which happens when its view leaves the stage). This should be all you need:


    You do not need to set the view reference to null either, because after the line above the mediator will be free for garbage collection (as will the view, provided there aren't other references to it).
