constexpr enable_shared_from_this() noexcept;
(1) (since C++11)
enable_shared_from_this( const enable_shared_from_this& other ) noexcept;
(2) (since C++11)

Constructs a new enable_shared_from_this object. The exposition only std::weak_ptr<T> member weak-this is value-initialized.

Contents

[edit] Parameters

other - an enable_shared_from_this to copy

[edit] Notes

There is no move constructor: moving from an object derived from enable_shared_from_this does not transfer its shared identity.

[edit] Example

#include <memory>
 
struct Foo : public std::enable_shared_from_this<Foo>
{
    Foo() {} // implicitly calls enable_shared_from_this constructor
    std::shared_ptr<Foo> getFoo() { return shared_from_this(); }
};
 
int main()
{
    std::shared_ptr<Foo> pf1(new Foo);
    auto pf2 = pf1->getFoo(); // shares ownership of object with pf1
}
