vector (STL/CLR)

The template class describes an object that controls a varying-length sequence of elements that has random access. You use the container vector to manage a sequence of elements as a contiguous block of storage. The block is implemented as an array that grows on demand.

In the description below, GValue is the same as Value unless the latter is a ref type, in which case it is Value^.

Syntax

template<typename Value>  
    ref class vector  
        :   public  
        System::ICloneable,  
        System::Collections::IEnumerable,  
        System::Collections::ICollection,  
        System::Collections::Generic::IEnumerable<GValue>,  
        System::Collections::Generic::ICollection<GValue>,  
        System::Collections::Generic::IList<GValue>,  
        Microsoft::VisualC::StlClr::IVector<GValue>  
    { ..... };  

Parameters

Value
The type of an element in the controlled sequence.

Requirements

Header: <cliext/vector>

Interfaces

Interface Description
ICloneable Duplicate an object.
IEnumerable Sequence through elements.
ICollection Maintain group of elements.
IEnumerable<T> Sequence through typed elements.
ICollection<T> Maintain group of typed elements.
IList<T> Maintain ordered group of typed elements.
IVector<Value> Maintain generic container.

Remarks

The object allocates and frees storage for the sequence it controls through a stored array of Value elements, which grows on demand. Growth occurs in such a way that the cost of appending a new element is amortized constant time. In other words, the cost of adding elements at the end does not increase, on average, as the length of the controlled sequence gets larger. Thus, a vector is a good candidate for the underlying container for template class stack (STL/CLR).

A vector supports random-access iterators, which means you can refer to an element directly given its numerical position, counting from zero for the first (front) element, to size() - 1 for the last (back) element. It also means that a vector is a good candidate for the underlying container for template class priority_queue (STL/CLR).

A vector iterator stores a handle to its associated vector object, along with the bias of the element it designates. You can use iterators only with their associated container objects. The bias of a vector element is the same as its position.

Inserting or erasing elements can change the element value stored at a given position, so the value designated by an iterator can also change. (The container may have to copy elements up or down to create a hole before an insert or to fill a hole after an erase.) Nevertheless, a vector iterator remains valid so long as its bias is in the range [0, size()]. Moreover, a valid iterator remains dereferencable -- you can use it to access or alter the element value it designates -- so long as its bias is not equal to size().

Erasing or removing an element calls the destructor for its stored value. Destroying the container erases all elements. Thus, a container whose element type is a ref class ensures that no elements outlive the container. Note, however, that a container of handles does not destroy its elements.

Members

vector::assign (STL/CLR)

Replaces all elements.

Syntax

void assign(size_type count, value_type val);  
template<typename InIt>  
    void assign(InIt first, InIt last);  
void assign(System::Collections::Generic::IEnumerable<Value>^ right);  

Parameters

count
Number of elements to insert.

first
Beginning of range to insert.

last
End of range to insert.

right
Enumeration to insert.

val
Value of the element to insert.

Remarks

The first member function replaces the controlled sequence with a repetition of count elements of value val. You use it to fill the container with elements all having the same value.

If InIt is an integer type, the second member function behaves the same as assign((size_type)first, (value_type)last). Otherwise, it replaces the controlled sequence with the sequence [first, last). You use it to make the controlled sequence a copy another sequence.

The third member function replaces the controlled sequence with the sequence designated by the enumerator right. You use it to make the controlled sequence a copy of a sequence described by an enumerator.

Example

// cliext_vector_assign.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// assign a repetition of values   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c2;   
    c2.assign(6, L'x');   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// assign an iterator range   
    c2.assign(c1.begin(), c1.end() - 1);   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// assign an enumeration   
    c2.assign(   // NOTE: cast is not needed   
        (System::Collections::Generic::IEnumerable<wchar_t>^)%c1);   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
x x x x x x  
a b  
a b c  

vector::at (STL/CLR)

Accesses an element at a specified position.

Syntax

reference at(size_type pos);  

Parameters

pos
Position of element to access.

Remarks

The member function returns a reference to the element of the controlled sequence at position pos. You use it to read or write an element whose position you know.

Example

// cliext_vector_at.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c" using at   
    for (int i = 0; i < c1.size(); ++i)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", c1.at(i));   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// change an entry and redisplay   
    c1.at(1) = L'x';   
    for (int i = 0; i < c1.size(); ++i)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", c1[i]);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
a b c  
a x c  

vector::back (STL/CLR)

Accesses the last element.

Syntax

reference back();  

Remarks

The member function returns a reference to the last element of the controlled sequence, which must be non-empty. You use it to access the last element, when you know it exists.

Example

// cliext_vector_back.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect last item   
    System::Console::WriteLine("back() = {0}", c1.back());   

// alter last item and reinspect   
    c1.back() = L'x';   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
back() = c  
 a b x  

vector::back_item (STL/CLR)

Accesses the last element.

Syntax

property value_type back_item;  

Remarks

The property accesses the last element of the controlled sequence, which must be non-empty. You use it to read or write the last element, when you know it exists.

Example

// cliext_vector_back_item.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect last item   
    System::Console::WriteLine("back_item = {0}", c1.back_item);   

// alter last item and reinspect   
    c1.back_item = L'x';   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
back_item = c  
 a b x  

vector::begin (STL/CLR)

Designates the beginning of the controlled sequence.

Syntax

iterator begin();  

Remarks

The member function returns a random-access iterator that designates the first element of the controlled sequence, or just beyond the end of an empty sequence. You use it to obtain an iterator that designates the current beginning of the controlled sequence, but its status can change if the length of the controlled sequence changes.

Example

// cliext_vector_begin.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect first two items   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::iterator it = c1.begin();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*begin() = {0}", *it);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*++begin() = {0}", *++it);   

// alter first two items and reinspect   
    *--it = L'x';   
    *++it = L'y';   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
*begin() = a  
*++begin() = b  
 x y c  

vector::capacity (STL/CLR)

Reports the size of allocated storage for the container.

Syntax

size_type capacity();  

Remarks

The member function returns the storage currently allocated to hold the controlled sequence, a value at least as large as vector::size (STL/CLR)(). You use it to determine how much the container can grow before it must reallocate storage for the controlled sequence.

Example

// cliext_vector_capacity.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for (int i = 0; i < c1.size(); ++i)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", c1.at(i));   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// increase capacity   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::size_type cap = c1.capacity();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("capacity() = {0}, ok = {1}",   
        cap, c1.size() <= cap);   
    c1.reserve(cap + 5);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("capacity() = {0}, ok = {1}",   
        c1.capacity(), cap + 5 <= c1.capacity());   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
capacity() = 4, ok = True  
capacity() = 9, ok = True  

vector::clear (STL/CLR)

Removes all elements.

Syntax

void clear();  

Remarks

The member function effectively calls vector::erase (STL/CLR)( vector::begin (STL/CLR)(), vector::end (STL/CLR)()). You use it to ensure that the controlled sequence is empty.

Example

// cliext_vector_clear.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// clear the container and reinspect   
    c1.clear();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0}", c1.size());   

// add elements and clear again   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   

    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    c1.clear();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0}", c1.size());   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
size() = 0  
 a b  
size() = 0

    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::const_iterator cit = c1.begin();

        {   // get a const reference to an element   
        cliext::vector<wchar_t>::const_reference cref = *cit;   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", cref);   
        }

    for (cliext::vector<wchar_t>::iterator it = c1.end();   
        it != c1.begin(); --it) --diff;   
    System::Console::WriteLine("begin()-end() = {0}", diff);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c

empty() = True  

vector::end (STL/CLR)

Designates the end of the controlled sequence.

Syntax

// cliext_vector_end.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {

    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect last two items   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::iterator it = c1.end();   
    --it;   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*-- --end() = {0}", *--it);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*--end() = {0}", *++it);   

// alter first two items and reinspect   
    *--it = L'x';   
    *++it = L'y';   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c

vector::erase (STL/CLR)

Removes elements at specified positions.

Syntax

iterator erase(iterator where);  
iterator erase(iterator first, iterator last);  

Parameters

first
Beginning of range to erase.

last
End of range to erase.

where
Element to erase.

Remarks

The first member function removes the element of the controlled sequence pointed to by where. You use it to remove a single element.

The second member function removes the elements of the controlled sequence in the range [first, last). You use it to remove zero or more contiguous elements.

Both member functions return an iterator that designates the first element remaining beyond any elements removed, or vector::end (STL/CLR)() if no such element exists.

When erasing elements, the number of element copies is linear in the number of elements between the end of the erasure and the nearer end of the sequence. (When erasing one or more elements at either end of the sequence, no element copies occur.)

Example

// cliext_vector_erase.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// erase an element and reinspect   
    System::Console::WriteLine("erase(begin()) = {0}",   
        *c1.erase(c1.begin()));   

// add elements and display " b c d e"   
    c1.push_back(L'd');   
    c1.push_back(L'e');   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// erase all but end   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::iterator it = c1.end();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("erase(begin(), end()-1) = {0}",   
        *c1.erase(c1.begin(), --it));   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0}", c1.size());   
    return (0);   
    }

erase(begin(), end()-1) = e  
size() = 1  

vector::front (STL/CLR)

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect first item   
    System::Console::WriteLine("front() = {0}", c1.front());   

// alter first item and reinspect   
    c1.front() = L'x';   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
front() = a  
 x b c  

vector::front_item (STL/CLR)

Accesses the first element.

Syntax

    System::Console::WriteLine("front_item = {0}", c1.front_item);   

// alter first item and reinspect   
    c1.front_item = L'x';   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);

vector::insert (STL/CLR)

Adds elements at a specified position.

Syntax

iterator insert(iterator where, value_type val);  
void insert(iterator where, size_type count, value_type val);  
template<typename InIt>  
    void insert(iterator where, InIt first, InIt last);  
void insert(iterator where,  
    System::Collections::Generic::IEnumerable<Value>^ right);  

Parameters

count
Number of elements to insert.

first
Beginning of range to insert.

last
End of range to insert.

right
Enumeration to insert.

val
Value of the element to insert.

where
Where in container to insert before.

Remarks

Each of the member functions inserts, before the element pointed to by where in the controlled sequence, a sequence specified by the remaining operands.

The first member function inserts an element with value val and returns an iterator that designates the newly inserted element. You use it to insert a single element before a place designated by an iterator.

The second member function inserts a repetition of count elements of value val. You use it to insert zero or more contiguous elements which are all copies of the same value.

If InIt is an integer type, the third member function behaves the same as insert(where, (size_type)first, (value_type)last). Otherwise, it inserts the sequence [first, last). You use it to insert zero or more contiguous elements copied from another sequence.

The fourth member function inserts the sequence designated by the right. You use it to insert a sequence described by an enumerator.

When inserting a single element, the number of element copies is linear in the number of elements between the insertion point and the nearer end of the sequence. (When inserting one or more elements at either end of the sequence, no element copies occur.) If InIt is an input iterator, the third member function effectively performs a single insertion for each element in the sequence. Otherwise, when inserting N elements, the number of element copies is linear in N plus the number of elements between the insertion point and the nearer end of the sequence.

Example

// cliext_vector_insert.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// insert a single value using iterator   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::iterator it = c1.begin();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("insert(begin()+1, L'x') = {0}",   
        *c1.insert(++it, L'x'));   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// insert a repetition of values   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c2;   
    c2.insert(c2.begin(), 2, L'y');   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// insert an iterator range   
    it = c1.end();   
    c2.insert(c2.end(), c1.begin(), --it);   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// insert an enumeration   
    c2.insert(c2.begin(),   // NOTE: cast is not needed   
        (System::Collections::Generic::IEnumerable<wchar_t>^)%c1);   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }

Example

// cliext_vector_iterator.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c"   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::iterator it = c1.begin();   
    for (; it != c1.end(); ++it)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", *it);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// alter first element and redisplay   
    it = c1.begin();   
    *it = L'x';   
    for (; it != c1.end(); ++it)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", *it);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }

x b c  

vector::operator= (STL/CLR)

Replaces the controlled sequence.

Syntax

vector<Value>% operator=(vector<Value>% right);  

Parameters

Container to copy.

Remarks

The member operator copies right to the object, then returns *this. You use it to replace the controlled sequence with a copy of the controlled sequence in right.

Example

// cliext_vector_operator_as.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// assign to a new container   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c2;   
    c2 = c1;   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
a b c  
a b c  

vector::operator(STL/CLR)

Accesses an element at a specified position.

Syntax

reference operator[](size_type pos);  

Parameters

pos
Position of element to access.

Remarks

The member operator returns a referene to the element at position pos. You use it to access an element whose position you know.

Example

// cliext_vector_operator_sub.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c" using subscripting   
    for (int i = 0; i < c1.size(); ++i)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", c1[i]);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// change an entry and redisplay   
    c1[1] = L'x';   
    for (int i = 0; i < c1.size(); ++i)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", c1[i]);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
a b c  
a x c  

vector::pop_back (STL/CLR)

Removes the last element.

Syntax

void pop_back();  

Remarks

The member function removes the last element of the controlled sequence, which must be non-empty. You use it to shorten the vector by one element at the back.

Example

// cliext_vector_pop_back.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// pop an element and redisplay   
    c1.pop_back();   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
a b c  
a b  

vector::push_back (STL/CLR)

Adds a new last element.

Syntax

void push_back(value_type val);  

Remarks

The member function inserts an element with value val at the end of the controlled sequence. You use it to append another element to the vector.

Example

// cliext_vector_push_back.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
a b c  

vector::rbegin (STL/CLR)

Designates the beginning of the reversed controlled sequence.

Syntax

reverse_iterator rbegin();  

Remarks

The member function returns a reverse iterator that designates the last element of the controlled sequence, or just beyond the beginning of an empty sequence. Hence, it designates the beginning of the reverse sequence. You use it to obtain an iterator that designates the current beginning of the controlled sequence seen in reverse order, but its status can change if the length of the controlled sequence changes.

Example

// cliext_vector_rbegin.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect first two items in reversed sequence   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::reverse_iterator rit = c1.rbegin();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*rbegin() = {0}", *rit);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*++rbegin() = {0}", *++rit);   

// alter first two items and reinspect   
    *--rit = L'x';   
    *++rit = L'y';   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
*rbegin() = c  
*++rbegin() = b  
 a y x

#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');

    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::iterator it = c1.begin();   
    for (; it != c1.end(); ++it)   
        {   // get a reference to an element   
        cliext::vector<wchar_t>::reference ref = *it;   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", ref);   
        }   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// modify contents " a b c"   
    for (it = c1.begin(); it != c1.end(); ++it)   
        {   // get a reference to an element   
        cliext::vector<wchar_t>::reference ref = *it;   

        ref += (wchar_t)(L'A' - L'a');   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", ref);   
        }   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
a b c  
A B C  

vector::rend (STL/CLR)

Designates the end of the reversed controlled sequence.

Syntax

reverse_iterator rend();  

Remarks

The member function returns a reverse iterator that points just beyond the beginning of the controlled sequence. Hence, it designates the end of the reverse sequence. You use it to obtain an iterator that designates the current end of the controlled sequence seen in reverse order, but its status can change if the length of the controlled sequence changes.

Example

// cliext_vector_rend.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect first two items   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::reverse_iterator rit = c1.rend();   
    --rit;   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*-- --rend() = {0}", *--rit);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*--rend() = {0}", *++rit);   

// alter first two items and reinspect   
    *--rit = L'x';   
    *++rit = L'y';   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
*-- --rend() = b  
*--rend() = a  
 y x c  

vector::reserve (STL/CLR)

Ensures a minimum growth capacity for the container.

Syntax

void reserve(size_type count);  

Parameters

count
New minimum capacity of the container.

Remarks

The member function ensures that capacity() henceforth returns at least count. You use it to ensure that the container need not reallocate storage for the controlled sequence until it has grown to the specified size.

Example

// cliext_vector_reserve.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for (int i = 0; i < c1.size(); ++i)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", c1.at(i));   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// increase capacity   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::size_type cap = c1.capacity();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("capacity() = {0}, ok = {1}",   
        cap, c1.size() <= cap);   
    c1.reserve(cap + 5);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("capacity() = {0}, ok = {1}",   
        c1.capacity(), cap + 5 <= c1.capacity());   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
capacity() = 4, ok = True  
capacity() = 9, ok = True  

vector::resize (STL/CLR)

Changes the number of elements.

Syntax

void resize(size_type new_size);  
void resize(size_type new_size, value_type val);  

Parameters

new_size
New size of the controlled sequence.

val
Value of the padding element.

Remarks

The member functions both ensure that vector::size (STL/CLR)() henceforth returns new_size. If it must make the controlled sequence longer, the first member function appends elements with value value_type(), while the second member function appends elements with value val. To make the controlled sequence shorter, both member functions effectively erase the last element vector::size (STL/CLR)() - new_size times. You use it to ensure that the controlled sequence has size new_size, by either trimming or padding the current controlled sequence.

Example

// cliext_vector_resize.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
// construct an empty container and pad with default values   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0}", c1.size());   
    c1.resize(4);   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", (int)elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// resize to empty   
    c1.resize(0);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0}", c1.size());   

// resize and pad   
    c1.resize(5, L'x');   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
size() = 0  
 0 0 0 0  
size() = 0  
 x x x x x  

vector::reverse_iterator (STL/CLR)

The type of a reverse iterator for the controlled sequence.

Syntax

typedef T3 reverse_iterator;  

Remarks

The type describes an object of unspecified type T3 that can serve as a reverse iterator for the controlled sequence.

Example

// cliext_vector_reverse_iterator.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c" reversed   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::reverse_iterator rit = c1.rbegin();   
    for (; rit != c1.rend(); ++rit)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", *rit);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// alter first element and redisplay   
    rit = c1.rbegin();   
    *rit = L'x';   
    for (; rit != c1.rend(); ++rit)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", *rit);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
c b a  
x b a  

vector::size (STL/CLR)

Counts the number of elements.

Syntax

size_type size();  

Remarks

The member function returns the length of the controlled sequence. You use it to determine the number of elements currently in the controlled sequence. If all you care about is whether the sequence has nonzero size, see vector::empty (STL/CLR)().

Example

// cliext_vector_size.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0} starting with 3", c1.size());   

// clear the container and reinspect   
    c1.clear();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0} after clearing", c1.size());   

// add elements and clear again   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0} after adding 2", c1.size());   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
size() = 3 starting with 3  
size() = 0 after clearing  
size() = 2 after adding 2  

vector::size_type (STL/CLR)

The type of a signed distance between two elements.

Syntax

typedef int size_type;  

Remarks

The type describes a non-negative element count.

Example

// cliext_vector_size_type.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// compute positive difference   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t>::size_type diff = c1.end() - c1.begin();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("end()-begin() = {0}", diff);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
end()-begin() = 3  

vector::swap (STL/CLR)

Swaps the contents of two containers.

Syntax

void swap(vector<Value>% right);  

Parameters

right

Remarks

The member function swaps the controlled sequences between *this and right. It does so in constant time and it throws no exceptions. You use it as a quick way to exchange the contents of two containers.

Example

// cliext_vector_swap.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// construct another container with repetition of values   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c2(5, L'x');   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// swap and redisplay   
    c1.swap(c2);   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();

The member function returns an array containing the controlled sequence. You use it to obtain a copy of the controlled sequence in array form.

Example

// cliext_vector_to_array.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// copy the container and modify it   
    cli::array<wchar_t>^ a1 = c1.to_array();   

    c1.push_back(L'd');   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// display the earlier array copy   
    for each (wchar_t elem in a1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
a b c d  
a b c  

vector::value_type (STL/CLR)

Syntax

typedef Value value_type;  

Remarks

The type is a synonym for the template parameter Value.

Example

// cliext_vector_value_type.cpp

        vector<Value>% right);  

Parameters

left
Left container to compare.

right
Right container to compare.

Remarks

The operator function returns !(left == right). You use it to test whether left is not ordered the same as right when the two vectors are compared element by element.

Example

// cliext_vector_operator_ne.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// assign to a new container   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c2;   
    c2.push_back(L'a');   
    c2.push_back(L'b');   
    c2.push_back(L'd');   

// display contents " a b d"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

    System::Console::WriteLine("[a b c] != [a b c] is {0}",

    bool operator<(vector<Value>% left,  
        vector<Value>% right);  

Parameters

left
Left container to compare.

right
Right container to compare.

Remarks

The operator function returns true if, for the lowest position i for which !(right[i] < left[i]) it is also true that left[i] < right[i]. Otherwise, it returns left->size() < right->size() You use it to test whether left is ordered before right when the two vectors are compared element by element.

Example

    c2.push_back(L'a');   
    c2.push_back(L'b');   
    c2.push_back(L'd');   

// display contents " a b d"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);

    bool operator<=(vector<Value>% left,  
        vector<Value>% right);  

Parameters

left
Left container to compare.

right

    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c2;   
    c2.push_back(L'a');   
    c2.push_back(L'b');   
    c2.push_back(L'd');   

// display contents " a b d"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);

    bool operator==(vector<Value>% left,  
        vector<Value>% right);  

Parameters

left
Left container to compare.

right
Right container to compare.

Remarks

The operator function returns true only if the sequences controlled by left and right have the same length and, for each position i, left[i] == right[i]. You use it to test whether left is ordered the same as right when the two vectors are compared element by element.

Example

// cliext_vector_operator_eq.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {

operator> (vector) (STL/CLR)

Vector greater than comparison.

Syntax

template<typename Value>  
    bool operator>(vector<Value>% left,  
        vector<Value>% right);  

Parameters

left
Left container to compare.

right
Right container to compare.

Remarks

The operator function returns right < left. You use it to test whether left is ordered after right when the two vectors are compared element by element.

Example

// cliext_vector_operator_gt.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// assign to a new container   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c2;   
    c2.push_back(L'a');   
    c2.push_back(L'b');   
    c2.push_back(L'd');   

// display contents " a b d"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

    System::Console::WriteLine("[a b c] > [a b c] is {0}",   
        c1 > c1);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("[a b d] > [a b c] is {0}",   
        c2 > c1);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
 a b d  
[a b c] > [a b c] is False  
[a b d] > [a b c] is True  

operator>= (vector) (STL/CLR)

Vector greater than or equal comparison.

Syntax

template<typename Value>  
    bool operator>=(vector<Value>% left,  
        vector<Value>% right);  

Parameters

left
Left container to compare.

right
Right container to compare.

Remarks

The operator function returns !(left < right). You use it to test whether left is not ordered before right when the two vectors are compared element by element.

Example

// cliext_vector_operator_ge.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/vector>   

int main()   
    {   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c1;   
    c1.push_back(L'a');   
    c1.push_back(L'b');   
    c1.push_back(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// assign to a new container   
    cliext::vector<wchar_t> c2;   
    c2.push_back(L'a');   
    c2.push_back(L'b');   
    c2.push_back(L'd');   

// display contents " a b d"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

    System::Console::WriteLine("[a b c] >= [a b c] is {0}",   
        c1 >= c1);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("[a b c] >= [a b d] is {0}",   
        c1 >= c2);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
 a b d  
[a b c] >= [a b c] is True  
[a b c] >= [a b d] is False
