std collection of ref class RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a public ref class that I am trying to put in either a std::map, std::multimap, or std::set.  I can arrange my data structure to use any.  Ideally, if it were in a set, I would use the Class^ as the type and do a pointer compare so that I never have multiple instances of the same object in the collection.

    The other problem spot is that this collection is a static member of the class and the object will not be removed from the collection until the destructor is called, so I need to avoid a circular reference.

  • It looks like Platform::WeakReference does what I need.
