All Platforms

__identifier(C++_keyword)

Remarks

Use of the __identifier keyword for identifiers that are not keywords is permitted, but strongly discouraged as a matter of style.

Windows Runtime

Requirements

Compiler option: /ZW

Examples

Example

In the following example, a class named template is created in C# and distributed as a DLL. In the C++/CLI program that uses the template class, the __identifier keyword conceals the fact that template is a standard C++ keyword.

// identifier_template.cs
// compile with: /target:library
public class template {
   public void Run() { }
}
// keyword__identifier.cpp
// compile with: /ZW
#using <identifier_template.dll>
int main() {
   __identifier(template)^ pTemplate = ref new __identifier(template)();
   pTemplate->Run();
}

Common Language Runtime

Remarks

The __identifier keyword is valid with the /clr compiler option.
