Type Name
enum index_name { index_name = static_cast<uint64_t>(IndexName) }
typedef Extractor secondary_extractor_type

Detailed Description

The indexed_by struct is used to instantiate the indices for the Multi-Index table. In EOSIO, up to 16 secondary indices can be specified.

Template parameters:

  • IndexName - is the name of the index. The name must be provided as an EOSIO base32 encoded 64-bit integer and must conform to the EOSIO naming requirements of a maximum of 13 characters, the first twelve from the lowercase characters a-z, digits 1-5, and ".", and if there is a 13th character, it is restricted to lowercase characters a-p and ".".
  • Extractor - is a function call operator that takes a const reference to the table object type and returns either a secondary key type or a reference to a secondary key type. It is recommended to use the template, which is a type alias to the `boost::multi_index::const_mem_fun`. See the documentation for the Boost key extractor for more details.
