hi guys.
 
i have a CLR project and a c++ managed class.
i need to mimic the behavior of the "is" keyword from c# but i dont know how to do it in managed code.
 
part of my code:
1.C# code:
public class emailMsg : Msg
{
    string email;
}
2.C++ manged code
Msg^ msg = gcnew Msg();
if (msg is emailMsg)
{
    //DO SOMETHING
}

Solution 1

dynamic_cast<T^>(expression)
 
The C# 'is' operator is nothing more than an 'as' cast followed by a check for null, which is exactly the same thing you get by using dynamic_cast in C++ followed by a check for nullptr.
