CMapStringToPtr Class

Supports maps of void pointers keyed by CString objects.

class CMapStringToPtr : public CObject

The member functions of CMapStringToPtr are similar to the member functions of class CMapStringToOb. Because of this similarity, you can use the CMapStringToOb reference documentation for member function specifics. Wherever you see a CObject pointer as a function parameter or return value, substitute a pointer to void.

BOOL CMapStringToOb::Lookup( const char* <key>,

CObject*& <rValue> ) const;

for example, translates to

BOOL CMapStringToPtr::Lookup( LPCTSTR <key>, void*& <rValue> )


CMapStringToPtr incorporates the IMPLEMENT_DYNAMIC macro to support run-time type access and dumping to a CDumpContext object. If you need a dump of individual map elements, you must set the depth of the dump context to 1 or greater.

String-to-pointer maps may not be serialized.

When a CMapStringToPtr object is deleted, or when its elements are removed, the CString key objects and the words are removed.
