Type trait constants
 
Defined in header <type_traits>
template< class T >
struct is_enum;
(since C++11)

Checks whether T is an enumeration type. Provides the member constant value which is equal to true, if T is an enumeration type . Otherwise, value is equal to false.

T - a type to check

Inherited from std::integral_constant

Member constants

value
[static]
true if T is an enumeration type , 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)

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

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <type_traits>
 
class A {};
 
enum E {};
 
enum class Ec : int {};
 
int main() 
{
    std::cout << std::boolalpha;
    std::cout << std::is_enum<A>::value << '\n';
    std::cout << std::is_enum<E>::value << '\n';
    std::cout << std::is_enum<Ec>::value << '\n';
    std::cout << std::is_enum<int>::value << '\n';
}

Output:

false
true
true
false
