template<class S, class M>
constexpr bool is_pointer_interconvertible_with_class( M S::* mp ) noexcept;
(since C++20)

Given an object s of type S, determines whether s.*mp refers a subobject of s and s is pointer-interconvertible with its subobject s.*mp. The program is ill-formed if S is not a complete type.

If S is not a StandardLayoutType, or M is not an object type, or mp is equal to nullptr, the result is always false.


[edit] Parameters

mp - a pointer-to-member to detect

[edit] Return value

true if s.*mp refers a subobject of s and s is pointer-interconvertible with its subobject s.*mp, otherwise false, where s is an object of type S.

[edit] Notes

The type of a pointer-to-member expression &S::m is not always M S::*, where m is of type M, because m may be a member inherited from a base class of S. The first template argument can be specified in order to avoid potentially surprising results.

If there is a value mp of type M S::* such that std::is_pointer_interconvertible_with_class(mp) == true, then reinterpret_cast<M&>(s) has well-defined result and it refers the same subobject as s.*mp, where s is a valid lvalue of type S.

On common platforms, the bit pattern of mp is all zero if std::is_pointer_interconvertible_with_class(mp) == true.

[edit] Example

#include <type_traits>
#include <iostream>
struct Foo { int x; };
struct Bar { int y; };
struct Baz : Foo, Bar {}; // not standard-layout
int main()
    std::cout << std::boolalpha
        << std::is_same_v<decltype(&Baz::x), int Baz::*>
        << std::is_pointer_interconvertible_with_class(&Baz::x) << '\n'
        << std::is_pointer_interconvertible_with_class<Baz>(&Baz::x) << '\n';
