static_smart_ptr_cast Method

Casts a smart_ptr to a TType to a smart_ptr to a TDestType by using static_cast.
template<typename TDestType,typename="" TType="">
inline smart_ptr<TDestType> static_smart_ptr_cast( smart_ptr<TType> op2 )

Parameter Description

The smart_ptr to be casted to TDestType.

Return value:

The result of the static_cast operation.


The program has to make sure that op2 is actually of type TDestType, otherwise its behavior is undefined.

Introduced in version 3.5


The following sample shows how cast a GrabberSinkType that was returned from Grabber::getSinkTypePtr to its actual type:

grabber.setSinkType( FrameQueueSink::create( /* ... */ ) );

// ...

smart_ptr<FrameQueueSink> pSink = static_smart_ptr_cast<FrameQueueSink>( grabber.getSinkTypePtr() );
