StrongCOWRefHandler Class Reference

#include <baseref.h>

Inheritance diagram for StrongCOWRefHandler:

Detailed Description

StrongCOWRefHandler has to be used as template argument for BaseRef to obtain a reference to objects which support reference counting, and which shall have copy-on-write semantics. It shares the basic behavior of StrongRefHandler, but if a modification of the object is to be made through the reference, or if BaseRef::MakeWritable() is invoked, it is checked by invocation of GetReferenceCount() on the object if the reference is exclusive or not. If so, the object can be modified directly, otherwise a copy is made and set as new pointee of the reference. This way the other references to the original object aren't affected by the modification. If the allocation of a copy fails the reference will be set to null.

[in]resetOnErrorIf true (the default), the reference will be reset when the copy fails. If false, the reference will stay the same, but the function returns nullptr.
