Poco::Dynamic

class VarHolder

Library: Foundation
Package: Dynamic
Header: Poco/Dynamic/VarHolder.h

Description

Interface for a data holder used by the Var class. Provides methods to convert between data types. Only data types for which VarHolder specialization exists are supported.

Provided are specializations for all C++ built-in types with addition of std::string, Poco::UTF16String, DateTime, LocalDateTime, Timestamp, std::vector<Var> and DynamicStruct.

Additional types can be supported by adding specializations. When implementing specializations, the only condition is that they reside in Poco namespace and implement the pure virtual functions clone() and type().

Those conversions that are not implemented shall fail back to this base class implementation. All the convert() function overloads in this class throw BadCastException.

Constructors

VarHolder protected

VarHolder();

Creates the VarHolder.

Destructor

~VarHolder virtual

virtual ~VarHolder();

Destroys the VarHolder.

Member Functions

clone virtual

virtual VarHolder * clone(
    Placeholder < VarHolder > * pHolder = 0
) const = 0;

Implementation must implement this function to deep-copy the VarHolder. If small object optimization is enabled (i.e. if POCO_NO_SOO is not defined), VarHolder will be instantiated in-place if it's size is smaller than POCO_SMALL_OBJECT_SIZE.

size virtual inline

virtual std::size_t size() const;

Returns 1 if and only if Var is not empty or this function overriden.

type virtual

virtual const std::type_info & type() const = 0;

Implementation must return the type information (typeid) for the stored content.

cloneHolder protected inline

template < typename T > VarHolder * cloneHolder(
    Placeholder < VarHolder > * pVarHolder,
    const T & val
) const;

Instantiates value holder wrapper. If size of the wrapper is larger than POCO_SMALL_OBJECT_SIZE, holder is instantiated on the heap, otherwise it is instantiated in-place (in the pre-allocated buffer inside the holder).

Called from clone() member function of the implementation when small object optimization is enabled.

convertSignedFloatToUnsigned protected inline

template < typename F, typename T > void convertSignedFloatToUnsigned(
    const F & from,
    T & to
) const;

This function is meant for converting floating point data types to unsigned integral data types. Negative values can not be converted and if one is encountered, RangeException is thrown. If upper limit is within the target data type limits, the conversion is performed.

convertSignedToUnsigned protected inline

template < typename F, typename T > void convertSignedToUnsigned(
    const F & from,
    T & to
) const;

This function is meant for converting signed integral data types to unsigned data types. Negative values can not be converted and if one is encountered, RangeException is thrown. If upper limit is within the target data type limits, the conversion is performed.

convertToSmaller protected inline

template < typename F, typename T > void convertToSmaller(
    const F & from,
    T & to
) const;

This function is meant to convert signed numeric values from larger to smaller type. It checks the upper and lower bound and if from value is within limits of type T (i.e. check calls do not throw), it is converted.

convertToSmallerUnsigned protected inline

template < typename F, typename T > void convertToSmallerUnsigned(
    const F & from,
    T & to
) const;

This function is meant for converting unsigned integral data types, from larger to smaller type. Since lower limit is always 0 for unsigned types, only the upper limit is checked, thus saving some cycles compared to the signed version of the function. If the value to be converted is smaller than the maximum value for the target type, the conversion is performed.

convertUnsignedToSigned protected inline

template < typename F, typename T > void convertUnsignedToSigned(
    const F & from,
    T & to
) const;

This function is meant for converting unsigned integral data types to signed integral data types. Negative values can not be converted and if one is encountered, RangeException is thrown. If upper limit is within the target data type limits, the conversion is performed.
