Here is my question:

The problem is this, I have a program like this:

util->core->Gui

I'm trying to update the Gui from the core process. The thing is though, the only way to do that would be to do something like this:

util->Gui->Core

because Core would have to know about Gui. Is there a better solution? E.g. how can Core update Gui without Core knowing about Gui?

Where would the best place to ask it be?

You'll have to come up with a good title anyway, so: please add that to the title of this very question too! –  Arjan Nov 24 '13 at 21:29
    
Sounds like whiteboard question. Programmers maybe? –  Mysticial Nov 24 '13 at 21:29

Programmers is, according to its FAQ1:

a site for professional programmers who are interested in getting expert answers on conceptual questions about software development. If you have a question about...

  • algorithm and data structure concepts
  • design patterns
  • developer testing
  • development methodologies
  • freelancing and business concerns
  • quality assurance
  • software architecture
  • software engineering
  • software licensing

It sounds to me like your question falls under the design patterns point - maybe try asking there?


1 Fine, on-topic page. FAQ sounds better.
