Type trait constants
 
Defined in header <type_traits>
template< class From, class To >
struct is_convertible;
(since C++11)

If an imaginary rvalue of type From can be used in the return statement of a function returning To, that is, if it can be converted to To using implicit conversion, provides the member constant value equal to true. Otherwise value is false.

Contents

Inherited from std::integral_constant

Member constants

value
[static]
true if From is convertible to To , false otherwise
(public static member constant)

Member functions

operator bool
converts the object to bool, returns value
(public member function)
operator()
(C++14)
returns value
(public member function)

Type Definition
value_type bool
type std::integral_constant<bool, value>
[edit template]

[edit] Notes

Gives well-defined results for reference types, void types, array types, and function types.

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <type_traits>
 
int main() 
{
    class A {};
    class B : public A {};
    class C {};
 
    bool b2a = std::is_convertible<B*, A*>::value;
    bool a2b = std::is_convertible<A*, B*>::value;
    bool b2c = std::is_convertible<B*, C*>::value;
 
    std::cout << std::boolalpha;
    std::cout << b2a << '\n';
    std::cout << a2b << '\n';
    std::cout << b2c << '\n';
}

Output:

true
false
false
