Type Name
class eosio::multi_index

Detailed Description

EOSIO Multi-Index API provides a C++ interface to the EOSIO database. It is patterned after Boost Multi Index Container. EOSIO Multi-Index table requires exactly a uint64_t primary key. For the table to be able to retrieve the primary key, the object stored inside the table is required to have a const member function called primary_key() that returns uint64_t. EOSIO Multi-Index table also supports up to 16 secondary indices. The type of the secondary indices could be any of:

Template parameters:

  • TableName - name of the table
  • T - type of the data stored inside the table
  • Indices - secondary indices for the table, up to 16 indices is supported here
