there're situations were one needs to create pins at runtime depending on the value of some config pin. for example consider the Expr (Value) node. it creates input pins for each given variable name.
with beta28 coming up this kind of task got considerably easier to do with a new interface called IIOFactory.
it basically provides a method to create so called IO containers, containing the actual "view" on the pin data (such as ISpread) and controlling the lifetime of it.
say we want to create an ISpread<ISpread<T>> during runtime, we do something like this:
in case we decide to get rid of those two pins which are used by inputFooSpread we simply call Dispose on the associated IO container:
for details and as a starting point have a look at the new dynamic plugin template contained in beta28, which creates inputs and outputs on the fly, when changing the associated config pins.
