Hello All, Not an exact Foa
Not an exact Foam question. However, maybe someone can give some advice.
I made a class which does various tasks on a certain patch in a mesh. It reads in data from a dictionary, calculate things etc etc. This works fine when needed on 1 patch in the mesh. However, now I want it to perform on more patches, e.g. 2 or 3, depending on what is given in the dictionary. I have to pass one variable (a pointer to the mesh) to each object.
In C++ you can dynamically assign objects in an array using the keyword "new". However it seems not possible to also pass variables in that array.
Having a class called CRectangle, with the following assignement you create 2 objects of that class:
CRectangle * bobby = new CRectangle;
But if you also want to pass arguments, like e.g.:
CRectangle * bobby = new CRectangle(2,3);
is not possible. You get the following error message:
error: ISO C++ forbids initialization in array new
This really seems strange to me. In my case I found some very ugly work around (hard coded initialisation of e.g. 10 objects (object1, object2, etc) and call their members only for the objects I really need.
There must be a better way. Can someone show me the way?
Thanks in advance,
With this initialiser you will
With this initialiser you will always call the null constructor for the CRectangle, which is not what you want. I would recommend you make a PtrList of CRectangle and then add them to the list one at a time, using whatever constructor you prefer.
