Hey all,

In cloudInfo functionObject the cloud is read from the object registry as a base class parcelCloud, and some information is printed out. I want to extend this functionObject to print out more information about my cloud, which is a SprayCloud, a child class of parcelCloud. There are functions and methods defined only in the child class, and I cannot access them from the parent object. I tried dynamic casting to a SprayCloud type but it did not work. How can I access the methods and functions of a child cloud type by using the parent cloud type object I read from the objectRegistry?

Thanks!

Dear all,

Quick update. Following dynamic_cast assignment did the trick:

Code:
const sprayCloud& cloud = dynamic_cast<const sprayCloud&>(obr_.lookupObject<parcelCloud>(cloudName));
Hope this helps someone,

Bulut
