Class Variable::GlobalVariable

A C/C++ variable which has global scope.

Note that variables declared in anonymous namespaces have namespace scope, even though they are accessed in the same manner as variables declared in the enclosing scope of said namespace (which may be the global scope).

Direct supertypes

Indirect supertypes

Inherited predicates

declaredUsingAutoType

Holds if the type of this variable is declared using the C++ auto keyword.

from Variable
findRootCause

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

from Element
fromLibrary

Holds if this element may be from a library.

from Element
fromSource

Holds if this element may be from source.

from Element
getADeclarationEntry

Gets a declaration entry corresponding to this declaration. See the comment above this class for an explanation of the relationship between Declaration and DeclarationEntry.

from Variable
getADeclarationLocation

Gets the location of a declaration entry corresponding to this declaration.

from Variable
getAFile

Gets a file where this element occurs.

from Declaration
getASpecifier

Gets a specifier of this variable. This includes extern, static, auto, private, protected, public. Specifiers of the type of this variable, such as const and volatile, are instead accessed through this.getType().getASpecifier().

from Variable
getATemplateArgument

Gets an argument used to instantiate this variable from a template variable.

from Variable
getAnAccess

Gets an access to this variable.

from Variable
getAnAssignedValue

Gets an expression that is assigned to this variable somewhere in the program.

from Variable
getAnAssignment

Gets an assignment expression that assigns to this variable. For example: x=... or x+=....

from Variable
getAnAttribute

Gets an attribute of this variable.

from Variable
getDeclaringType

Gets the class where this member is declared, if it is a member. For templates, both the template itself and all instantiations of the template are considered to have the same declaring class.

from Declaration
getDefinition

Gets the declaration entry corresponding to this declaration that is a definition, if any.

from Variable
getDefinitionLocation

Gets the location of the definition, if any.

from Variable
getEnclosingElement

Gets the closest Element enclosing this one.

from GlobalOrNamespaceVariable
getFile

Gets the primary file where this element occurs.

from Element
getInitializer

Gets the initializer of this variable, if any.

from Variable
getLocation

Gets the preferred location of this declaration, if any.

from Variable
getName

Gets the name of this variable.

from GlobalOrNamespaceVariable
getNamespace

Gets the innermost namespace which contains this declaration.

from Declaration
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.

from Element
getQualifiedName

Gets the name of the declaration, fully qualified with its namespace. For example: “A::B::C::myfcn”.

from Declaration
getTemplateArgument

Gets a particular argument used to instantiate this variable from a template variable.

from Variable
getType

Gets the type of this variable.

from GlobalOrNamespaceVariable
getTypeWithAuto

Gets the type of this variable prior to deduction caused by the C++11 auto keyword.

from Variable
getUnderlyingType

Gets the type of this variable, after typedefs have been resolved.

from Variable
hasDeclaringType

Holds if this declaration is a member of a class/struct/union.

from Declaration
hasDefinition

Holds if the declaration has a definition.

from Declaration
hasGlobalName

Holds if this declaration has the given name in the global namespace.

from Declaration
hasInitializer

Holds if this variable has an initializer.

from Variable
hasName

Holds if this declaration has the given name.

from Declaration
hasQualifiedNamefrom Declaration
hasSpecifier

Holds if this declaration has a specifier with the given name.

from Declaration
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.

from Element
isCompilerGenerated

Holds if this is a compiler-generated variable. For example, a range-based for loop typically has three compiler-generated variables, named __range, __begin, and __end:

from Variable
isConst

Holds if this variable is const.

from Variable
isConstructedFrom

Holds if this variable is constructed from v as a result of template instantiation. If so, it originates either from a template variable or from a variable nested in a template class.

from Variable
isDefinedfrom Declaration
isFromTemplateInstantiation

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

from Element
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.

from Element
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.

from Element
isMember

Holds if this declaration is a member of a class/struct/union.

from Declaration
isStatic

Holds if this declaration is static.

from Declaration
isTopLevel

Holds if this declaration is a top-level declaration.

from Declaration
isVolatile

Holds if this variable is volatile.

from Variable
toString

Gets a textual representation of this element.
