CPtrList Class

Supports lists of void pointers.


class CPtrList : public CObject


The member functions of CPtrList are similar to the member functions of class CObList. Because of this similarity, you can use the CObList reference documentation for member function specifics. Wherever you see a CObject pointer as a function parameter or return value, substitute a pointer to void.

CObject*& CObList::GetHead() const;

for example, translates to

void*& CPtrList::GetHead() const;


CPtrList incorporates the IMPLEMENT_DYNAMIC macro to support run-time type access and dumping to a CDumpContext object. If you need a dump of individual pointer list elements, you must set the depth of the dump context to 1 or greater.

Pointer lists cannot be serialized.

When a CPtrList object is deleted, or when its elements are removed, only the pointers are removed, not the entities they reference.

For more information on using CPtrList, see the article Collections.
