Hai ,
Here class A is called as a Singleton class. The ristriction is placed that ONLY ONE object of that class can be created.


class A
{
private:
static int count;

A()
{
   count++;
}

public:

static A* CreateObj()
{
     A *a = new A;
    if(count > 1)
    {
      cout<<" Crossed the limit........ ";
      return NULL;

    }
   else
    {
      return a;
    }

  }

};


int A::count;

void main()
{

      A *r1,*r2 ,*r3;

      r1 = A::CreateObj();
      r2 = A::CreateObj();
      r3 = A::CreateObj();

}

kishore_joshiCommented:
Wyn,

Only if u put the constructor in the private, u can force the user to create the object by calling that static function CreateObj. Here in this function, we can check the value of static variable "count" and thus keep a control on the number of objects getting created.

kishore_joshi ,if you define constructor explicitly in private part.Aint this compiler error ?
The compiler cannot call constructor when we use new to create objects...

Hi Eirnava,
Its NOT compiler error. By declaring constructor in the private, we are forcing
the user to create the object only thru a static function.

If u declare the Copy Costructor (CC) also in the private, then u place another restriction on the user .....
i.e. u cannot pass the object of that class by value to any function, u HAVE to pass the object ONLY by reference.

Please try and execute the example that I have mentioned in the answer.
It should be more clear.  

Bye,
Kishore
