BOOST_TTI_HAS_MEMBER_DATA — A macro which expands to a metafunction which tests whether a member data with a particular name and type exists.


// In header: <boost/tti/has_member_data.hpp>



BOOST_TTI_HAS_MEMBER_DATA is a macro which expands to a metafunction. The metafunction tests whether member data with a particular name and type exists. The macro takes the form of BOOST_TTI_HAS_MEMBER_DATA(name) where

name = the name of the inner member.

BOOST_TTI_HAS_MEMBER_DATA generates a metafunction called "has_member_data_name" where 'name' is the macro parameter.

template<class BOOST_TTI_TP_ET,class BOOST_TTI_TP_TYPE>
struct has_member_data_'name'
  static const value = unspecified;
  typedef mpl::bool_<true-or-false> type;

The metafunction types and return:

  BOOST_TTI_TP_ET   = the enclosing type in which to look for our 'name'.
                      The enclosing type can be a class, struct, or union.
                      The type of the member data in the form of a pointer
                      to member data.
  BOOST_TTI_TP_TYPE = (optional) The type of the member data if the first
                      parameter is the enclosing type.
  returns  = 'value' is true if the 'name' exists, with the correct data type,
             otherwise 'value' is false.
