template<typename InterfaceType>
InterfaceType *carb::acquireInterfaceForBindings(const char *pluginName = nullptr)

A helper function for Framework::tryAcquireInterface() that attempts to load plugins if not found.

Template Parameters

InterfaceType – The interface to acquire (i.e. assets::IAssets). Must be specified and cannot be inferred.


pluginName – An optional specific plugin to acquire the interface from. If nullptr, the default plugin for the given InterfaceType is used.
