Hello,

I want to convert from ints implicit to a struct type, so for 
example:

struct use
{
	int x;

	int toInt()
	{
		return x;
	}

	use fromInt(int v)
	{
		return use(v);
	}

         alias toInt this; // implicit conversion to int value

	this(int v)
	{x = v;}
}

void useP(int v)
{
	v.writeln;
}

void useV(use v)
{
	v.writeln;
}

void main(string[] args)
{
	use a = use(2);
	//useP(a);
	useV(2); // how can i let this work?
}

Thanks :)

Not possible in D by design. std.conv.to is smart to use the int-taking constructor, which I think is useful in templated code in some cases: import std.conv : to; useV(2.to!use); Ali

I'm not sure what your actual use case is, but based on the example, you can just template `useV`. import std.stdio; struct use { int x; int toInt() { return x; } use fromInt(int v) { return use(v); } alias toInt this; // implicit conversion to int value this(int v) {x = v;} } void useP(int v) { v.writeln; } void useV(T)(T v) { v.writeln; } void main(string[] args) { use a = use(2); //useP(a); useV(2); // how can i let this work? } https://run.dlang.io/is/pJhQJh Mike
