Iterate Through Instances

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • I swear, this is my last question for a while. Okay, now that I know how to set up a static vector for storing pointers to other objects with the behavior, I need to know how to iterate through the pointers in the vector and retrieve data. I know it involves something similar to this:

    for (i = sameBehavior.begin(); i != sameBehavior.end(); i++)
    {
    
    }[/code:h8yfsghd]
    But I don't know how to properly setup the iterator or retrieve data from the current instance.
    
    Sorry if this is more general C++ than SDK specific, but I can't seem to find what I need anywhere else.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • An iterator is defined as what it is you are iterating.

    vector<CRunObject*>::iterator i = sameBehavior.begin();

    Then continue as you were with the loop. Because you're iterating pointers, you access the data of the CRunObject like so: (*i)->.

    Blah, you're probably right.

    An iterator is defined as what it is you are iterating.

    vector<CRunObject*>::iterator i = sameBehavior.begin();

    Then continue as you were with the loop. Because you're iterating pointers, you access the data of the CRunObject like so: (*i)->.

    Sweet! It works! I was doing something very similar to this before, but this actually worked.

  • Just thought I'd mention this for anybody else doing something similar to this. If you're making a behavior and want to share the properties of the objects they're linked to, you should use this:

    sameBehavior.push_back(pLink);[/code:ncps86ui]
    Not this:
    
    [code:ncps86ui]sameBehavior.push_back(this);[/code:ncps86ui]
