__identifier (C++/CLI)

 

Enables the use of Visual C++ keywords as identifiers.

Syntax

  
__identifier(  
Visual_C++_keyword  
)  
  

Remarks

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

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 Visual C++ 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();  
}  

Remarks

The __identifier keyword is valid with the /clr and /clr:oldSyntax compiler options.

Requirements

Compiler option: /clr
