Example text

The reason for this error is that, unlike in standard C++, the compiler won’t generate a default copy constructor for your class. At least one reason is that all ref objects implicitly derive from System::Object, which doesn’t have a copy constructor. Even if the compiler attempted to generate a copy constructor for a ref type, it would fail, because it wouldn’t be able to access the base class copy constructor (it doesn’t exist). To make that clearer, think of a native C++ class Base with a private copy constructor, and a derived class Derived (that publicly inherits from Base).

Use value types just as you’d use primitive types, such as ints and chars, and you should be OK. When you need simple types, without the complexities of virtual functions, constructors and operators, value types are the more efficient option, because they’re allocated on the stack. Stack access will be faster than accessing an object from the garbagecollected CLR heap. If you’re wondering why this is so, the stack implementation is far simpler when compared to the CLR heap. When you consider that the CLR heap also intrinsically supports a complex garbage-collection algorithm, it becomes obvious that the stack object is more efficient.

I also 36 CHAPTER 1 Introduction to C++/CLI suggest that you stay away from using two overloads, unless it’s a specific case of a library that will be exclusively used by C++ callers; even then, you must consider the issue of code duplication. Now you know that if you need copy construction on your ref types, you must implement it yourself.
