doxygenstruct Directive

This directive generates the appropriate output for a single struct. It takes the standard project, path, outline and no-link options and additionally the members, protected-members, private-members, undoc-members, membergroups and members-only options.

members

Designed to behavior in a similar manner to the members option for the autostruct directive that comes with the Sphinx autodoc extension.

If you do not specify this option you will not get any information about the struct members, just the general struct documentation. If you provide it without arguments, then Breathe adds all the public members and their documentation. If you specify it with comma separated arguments, then Breathe will treat the arguments as names of members and provide documentation for only those members that have been named.

protected-members

If specified, the protected members of the struct will be displayed.

private-members

If specified, the private members of the struct will be displayed.

undoc-members

If specified, the undocumented members of the struct will be displayed.

membergroups

If specified, only the groups in a space-delimited list following this directive will be displayed.

members-only

This will allow to show only the members, not the struct information. Child classes and structs are also not shown.

If you would like to always specify some combination of members, protected-members, private-members and undoc-members then you can use the breathe_default_members configuration variable to set it in the conf.py.

Basic Example

This displays the struct documentation without any members:

.. doxygenstruct:: StructTest
   :project: struct

It produces this output:

struct StructTest

struct outside of namespace

Members Example

This directive call will display the struct documentation with all the public members:

.. doxygenstruct:: StructTest
   :project: struct
   :members:

It produces this output:

struct StructTest

struct outside of namespace

Public Functions

virtual void publicFunction() const = 0

namespaced class function

class PublicClass

A public class.

class UndocumentedPublicClass

Specific Members Example

This displays the struct documentation with only the members listed in the :members: option:

.. doxygenstruct:: StructTest
   :project: struct
   :members: publicFunction, protectedFunction

It produces this output:

struct StructTest

struct outside of namespace

Public Functions

virtual void publicFunction() const = 0

namespaced class function

Protected Functions

inline void protectedFunction()

A protected function.

Protected Members

This displays only the protected members of the struct. Normally this is combined with the :members: option to show the public members as well.

.. doxygenstruct:: StructTest
   :project: struct
   :protected-members:

It produces this output:

struct StructTest

struct outside of namespace

Protected Functions

inline void protectedFunction()

A protected function.

class ProtectedClass

A protected class.

class UndocumentedProtectedClass

Private Members

This displays only the private members of the struct. Normally this is combined with the :members: option to show the public members as well.

.. doxygenstruct:: StructTest
   :project: struct
   :private-members:

It produces this output:

struct StructTest

struct outside of namespace

Private Functions

virtual void privateFunction() const = 0

This is a private function.

class PrivateClass

A private class.

class UndocumentedPrivateClass

Undocumented Members

This displays the undocumented members of the struct which are suppressed by default. Undocumented public members are only shown if the :members: option is also used. The same goes for the undocumented private members and the private-members option.

.. doxygenstruct:: StructTest
   :project: struct
   :members:
   :private-members:
   :undoc-members:

It produces this output:

struct StructTest

struct outside of namespace

Public Functions

virtual void publicFunction() const = 0

namespaced class function

virtual void undocumentedPublicFunction() const = 0

Private Functions

virtual void privateFunction() const = 0

This is a private function.

virtual void undocumentedPrivateFunction() const = 0
class PrivateClass

A private class.

class PublicClass

A public class.

class UndocumentedPrivateClass
class UndocumentedPublicClass

Note

Undocumented internal classes are still not shown in the output due to an implementation issue. Please post an issue on github if you would like this resolved.

Membergroups

Lists one or more names member groups.

See the doxygenclass documentation.

Outline Example

This displays only the names of the struct members and not their documentation. The :members: and :private-members: options determine which members are displayed.

.. doxygenstruct:: StructTest
   :project: struct
   :members:
   :outline:

It produces this output:

struct StructTest

Public Functions

virtual void publicFunction() const = 0
class PublicClass
class UndocumentedPublicClass

Failing Example

This intentionally fails:

.. doxygenstruct:: made_up_struct
   :project: struct
   :members:

It produces the following warning message:

Warning

doxygenstruct: Cannot find struct “made_up_struct” in doxygen xml output for project “struct” from directory: ../../examples/doxygen/struct/xml/
