Detailed Description

This class a basic iterator class for objects.

Call ObjectIterator::next() to iterate through the object; do not use the iterator if ObjectIterator::next() returns False. An object can be iterated in reverse order by calling ObjectIterator::prev() instead of ObjectIterator::next()

Example: ObjectIterator basic usage
class Class1 {
public {
int attr1;
date attr2;
}
constructor() {
attr1 = 1;
attr2 = now();
}
}
Class1 o();
ObjectIterator it(o);
while (it.next()) {
printf("iter: %n\n", it.getValue());
}
iter: 1

Note
  • In general, the ObjectIterator class is not designed to be accessed from multiple threads; it was created without locking for fast and efficient use when used from a single thread. For methods that would be unsafe to use in another thread, any use of such methods in threads other than the thread where the constructor was called will cause an ITERATOR-THREAD-ERROR to be thrown.

Member Function Documentation

◆ constructor() [1/2]

Qore::ObjectIterator::constructor ( object  o)

Creates the object iterator object.

Parameters
othe object to iterate
Example:
ObjectIterator i(obj);

◆ constructor() [2/2]

Qore::ObjectIterator::constructor ( )

Creates an empty object iterator object.

Example:
*object obj = get_object_or_nothing();
ObjectIterator i(obj);

◆ copy()

Qore::ObjectIterator::copy ( )

Creates a copy of the ObjectIterator object, iterating the same object as the original and in the same position.

Example:
ObjectIterator ni = i.copy();
