Will class member data automatically update...

Recommended Posts

...if I were to do something like this?
class Foo
{

 int x = 1;
 int y = 1;
 int z = x * y;

 public: 

 Set_XY(int x, int y);

};
 
If I used Set_XY to change the values of x and y, will z automatically update? This is one of those threads where half-way through typing it I realized two things: a) This is a stupid question. b) I can easily figure it out myself by programming a test. And yet here I will press the post button anyway to as to preserve this dingleberry of wisdom on GameDev''s immortal server.

In any case even if it did compile and you could use non-constant it wouldnt work.

Why? Because the initalisation only would occore when the class object was created. The function has to update the z value. Of course, all this is impossble!
