Defined in header <array>
template< class T, size_t N >

class tuple_size< array<T, N> > :
    public integral_constant<size_t, N>

{ };
(1) (since C++11)

Provides access to the number of elements in an std::array as a compile-time constant expression.

Contents

Inherited from std::integral_constant

Member constants

value
[static]
N, the number of elements in the array
(public static member constant)

Member functions

operator std::size_t
converts the object to std::size_t, returns value
(public member function)

Member types

Type Definition
value_type std::size_t
type std::integral_constant<std::size_t, value>

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <array>
 
template<class T>
void test(T t)
{
    int a[std::tuple_size<T>::value]; // can be used at compile time
    std::cout << std::tuple_size<T>::value << '\n';
}
 
int main()
{
    std::array<float, 3> arr;
    test(arr);
}

Output:

3
