Defined in header <any>
class bad_any_cast : public std::bad_cast;
(since C++17)

Defines a type of object to be thrown by the value-returning forms of std::any_cast on failure.

std::bad_any_cast::bad_any_cast

bad_any_cast() noexcept;
(1) (since C++17)
bad_any_cast( const bad_any_cast& other ) noexcept;
(2) (since C++17)

Constructs a new bad_any_cast object with an implementation-defined null-terminated byte string which is accessible through what().

1) Default constructor.
2) Copy constructor. If *this and other both have dynamic type std::bad_any_cast then std::strcmp(what(), other.what()) == 0.

Parameters

other - another exception object to copy

std::bad_any_cast::operator=

bad_any_cast& operator=( const bad_any_cast& other ) noexcept;
(since C++17)

Assigns the contents with those of other. If *this and other both have dynamic type std::bad_any_cast then std::strcmp(what(), other.what()) == 0 after assignment.

Parameters

other - another exception object to assign with

Return value

*this

std::bad_any_cast::what

virtual const char* what() const noexcept;
(since C++17)

Returns the explanatory string.

Parameters

(none)

Return value

Pointer to a null-terminated string with explanatory information. The string is suitable for conversion and display as a std::wstring. The pointer is guaranteed to be valid at least until the exception object from which it is obtained is destroyed, or until a non-const member function (e.g. copy assignment operator) on the exception object is called.

Notes

Implementations are allowed but not required to override what().
