is_union Class

Tests if type is a union.

template<class Ty>
    struct is_union;

Parameters

  • Ty
    The type to query.

Remarks

An instance of the type predicate holds true if the type Ty is a union type or a cv-qualified form of a union type, otherwise it holds false.

Example

// std_tr1__type_traits__is_union.cpp 
// compile with: /EHsc 
#include <type_traits> 
#include <iostream> 

struct trivial 
    { 
    int val; 
    }; 

union ints 
    { 
    int in; 
    long lo; 
    }; 

int main() 
    { 
    std::cout << "is_union<trivial> == " << std::boolalpha 
        << std::is_union<trivial>::value << std::endl; 
    std::cout << "is_union<int> == " << std::boolalpha 
        << std::is_union<int>::value << std::endl; 
    std::cout << "is_union<ints> == " << std::boolalpha 
        << std::is_union<ints>::value << std::endl; 

    return (0); 
    } 
is_union<trivial> == false
is_union<int> == false
is_union<ints> == true
