Defined in header <type_traits>
template< class Base, class Derived >
struct is_virtual_base_of;
(since C++26)

std::is_virtual_base_of is a BinaryTypeTrait.

If Base is a virtual base class of Derived (ignoring cv-qualification), provides the member constant value equal to true. Otherwise value is false.

If both Base and Derived are non-union class types (ignoring cv-qualification), Derived should be a complete type; otherwise the behavior is undefined.

If the program adds specializations for std::is_virtual_base_of or std::is_virtual_base_of_v, the behavior is undefined.

[edit] Helper variable template

template< class Base, class Derived >
inline constexpr bool is_virtual_base_of_v = is_virtual_base_of<Base, Derived>::value;

Inherited from std::integral_constant

Member constants

value
[static]
true if Derived is derived from virtual base class Base (ignoring cv-qualification), 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

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

[edit] Notes

std::is_virtual_base_of_v<A, B> is true even if A is a private, protected, or ambiguous base class of B.

If std::is_virtual_base_of_v<A, B> is true, then std::is_base_of_v<A, B> is also true. However, the converse is not true because the check for virtual inheritance is more specific. In that case, std::is_virtual_base_of_v<T, T> is false.
