/vdn - Suppress or Enable Virtual Base Class (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

This option, /vdn where n is zero or one, applies only to C++ code that uses virtual bases.

If a derived class overrides a virtual function that it inherits from a virtual base class, and a constructor or a destructor for the derived base class calls that function using a pointer to the virtual base class, the compiler might introduce additional hidden vtordisp fields into the classes with virtual bases.


The /vd0 option suppresses the addition of the hidden vtordisp constructor or destructor displacement member. The /vd1 option, the default, enables them where they are necessary.

Turn off vtordisps only if you are sure that all class constructors and destructors call virtual functions virtually.

The /vd option affects an entire compilation module. Use the vtordisp pragma to suppress and then re-enable vtordisp fields on a class-by-class basis.
