Function documentation

template<class Type, class CallerType>
Type* object_cast(const CallerType pObject)

Dynamically casts one instance of an Object into another type.

The type you are casting to must have a static member called 'TYPE', but it does not need to be an Object. If the object cannot be casted to the given type, nullptr is returned. Example usage:

cGameData* pCreature = GetCreature();
cModelObject* pModel = object_cast<cModelObject>(pCreature);
