makeScopedPointer and makeReferenceCountedObjectPtr


Just a bit of fun wrapping JUCE’s smart pointers in make functions, similar to std::make_unique and std::make_shared.

    /** This can be used to create a 'makeCustomSmartPointerType' function. */
    #define CREATE_MAKE_PTR_TYPE(CustomSmartPointerType) \
        template<class Type, class... ConstructorInitList> \
        inline typename std::enable_if<! std::is_array<Type>::value, CustomSmartPointerType<Type>>::type make##CustomSmartPointerType (ConstructorInitList&&... args) \
        { \
            return CustomSmartPointerType<Type> (new Type (std::forward<ConstructorInitList> (args)...)); \

    /** This creates a 'make' function in conjunction with juce::ScopedPointer. */
    CREATE_MAKE_PTR_TYPE (ScopedPointer)

    /** This creates a 'make' function in conjunction with juce::ReferenceCountedObjectPtr. */
    CREATE_MAKE_PTR_TYPE (ReferenceCountedObjectPtr)

Usage example:

auto element = makeScopedPointer<XmlElement> ("ElementName");
