auto_gcroot::attach 

Attach auto_gcroot to an object.


auto_gcroot<_element_type> & attach(
   _element_type _right
);
auto_gcroot<_element_type> & attach(
   auto_gcroot<_element_type> & _right
);
template<typename _other_type>
auto_gcroot<_element_type> & attach(
   auto_gcroot<_other_type> & _right
);

Parameters

_right

The object to attach, or an auto_gcroot containing the object to attach.

The current auto_gcroot.

If _right is an auto_gcroot, it releases ownership of its object before the object is attached to the current auto_gcroot.

   a->PrintHello();
   a.attach( gcnew ClassA( "second" ) ); // attach same type
   a->PrintHello();
   ClassA^ ha = gcnew ClassA( "third" );
   a.attach( ha ); // attach raw handle
   a->PrintHello();
   auto_gcroot<ClassB^> b( gcnew ClassB("fourth") );
   b->PrintHello();
   a.attach( b ); // attach derived type
   a->PrintHello();
}

Output

in ClassA destructor:first
Hello from second A!
in ClassA constructor:third
in ClassA destructor:second
Hello from third A!
in ClassA constructor:fourth
Hello from fourth B!
in ClassA destructor:third
