Traits< S > Struct Template Reference

Detailed Description

template<template< typename > class S>
struct drake::systems::scalar_conversion::Traits< S >

A templated traits class for whether an S<U> can be converted into an S<T>; the default value is true for all values of S, T, and U.

Particular scalar-dependent classes (S) may specialize this template to indicate whether the framework should support conversion for any given combination of T and U.

When Traits<S>::supported<T, U> is std::true_type, the "scalar-converting copy constructor" that relates S, T, and U will be used. That constructor takes the form of, e.g., when S is Foo:

template <typename T>
class Foo {
template <typename U>
explicit Foo(const Foo<U>& other);

See System Scalar Conversion for detailed background and examples related to scalar-type conversion support.

When Traits<S>::supported<T, U> is std::false_type, the S<T>::S(const S<U>&) scalar-conversion copy constructor will not even be mentioned by the framework, so that S need not even compile for certain values of T and U.
