Predicates

findRootCause

Gets the source of this element: either itself or a macro that expanded to this element.

fromLibrary

Holds if this element may be from a library.

fromSource

Holds if this element may be from source.

getEnclosingElement

Gets the closest Element enclosing this one.

getFile

Gets the primary file where this element occurs.

getLocation

Gets the primary location of this element.

getParentScope

Gets the parent scope of this Element, if any. A scope is a Type (Class / Enum), a Namespace, a Block, a Function, or certain kinds of Statement.

isAffectedByMacro

Holds if this element is affected in any way by a macro. All elements that are totally or partially generated by a macro are included, so this is a super-set of isInMacroExpansion.

isFromTemplateInstantiation

Holds if this Element is a part of a template instantiation (but not the template itself).

isFromUninstantiatedTemplate

Holds if this Element is part of a template template (not if it is part of an instantiation of template). This means it is represented in the database purely as syntax and without guarantees on the presence or correctness of type-based operations such as implicit conversions.

isInMacroExpansion

Holds if this element comes from a macro expansion. Only elements that are entirely generated by a macro are included - for elements that partially come from a macro, see isAffectedByMacro.

Inherited predicates

toString

Gets a textual representation of this element.
