Yes, you can. That works just like an array of any other data, e.g.

class MyClass {

  // ...
};

int main() {

  MyClass array_of_myclass[42]; // declares an instantiates array of 42  ojects of 'MyClass'
}

Open in new window


As a side note, if you declare an array of objects, each element's default constructor is called.

BTW, for a more complex example, see the tutorial at https://www.hscripts.com/tutorials/cpp/array-of-objects.php

Also, since that seems common in your question: There are only arrays of instances of classes (aka objects), there's no such thing as an array of classes.
