Type Lookup
Compile time mapping of id to type, type to id and type to type.
This file is generated from type_lookup_generator.h and can be created by running generate_type_lookup.bat.

For a less complex solution for simple id to type lookup, see etl::type_select.

type_id_pair
Support structure for type_id_lookup.

etl::type_id_pair<typename T, size_t ID>

Defines:
type The type.
ID   The id associated with the type.

type_type_pair
Support structure for type_type_lookup.

etl::type_type_pair<typename T1, typename T2>

Defines:
type1 The indexing type.
type2 The associated type.

type_id_lookup
Creates a class for compile time id to type and type to id mappings.
etl::type_id_lookup<typename T1, ...>

The number of types that can be handled is determined by the generator.
Each template parameter is a type_id_pair.

The class contains two nested templates.

type_from_id
Gets the type from the id.
type_from_id<size_t ID>

Defines:
type The associated type.

id_from_type
Gets the id from the type.
id_from_type<typename T>

Defines:
ID The associated id.

Static functions
Gets the id from the type.
template <typename T>
static unsigned int get_id_from_type(const T&)

template <typename T>
static unsigned int get_id_from_type()

type_type_lookup
Creates a class for compile time type to type mapping.

etl::type_id_lookup<typename T1, ...>
The number of types that can be handled is determined by the generator.
Each template parameter is a type_id_pair.

The class contains one nested template.

type_from_type
type_from_type<typename T>

Defines:
type The associated type.

Examples

  INT32  = 32,
  STRING = 1,
  UINT8  = 8,
  OTHER  = 0
};

typedef etl::type_id_pair<int32_t,     INT32>  TypeIdInt32;
typedef etl::type_id_pair<uint8_t,     UINT8>  TypeIdUint8;
typedef etl::type_id_pair<std::string, STRING> TypeIdString;

// Type from Id / Id from Type.
typedef etl::type_id_lookup<TypeIdInt32, TypeIdString, TypeIdUint8> Type_Id_Lookup;

// int32_t
typename Type_Id_Lookup::type_from_id<INT32>::type

// uint8_t

// std::string

type_type_lookup
// Get the next larger type.
typedef etl::type_type_pair<int16_t, int32_t>  TypeInt16;
typedef etl::type_type_pair<uint8_t, uint16_t> TypeUint8;
typedef etl::type_type_pair<float,   double>   TypeFloat;

// int32_t
typename Type_Type_Lookup::type_from_type<int16_t>::type

// uint16_t
typename Type_Type_Lookup::type_from_type<uint8_t>::type

// double
typename Type_Type_Lookup::type_from_type<float>::type

// Compile error
