Hi! I was wondering if the following can be done: I have a regular non-templated class, let's call it MyClass. Now I want this class to remain non-templated, but I want it to have a static method that takes a template parameter, so something like this:
class MyClass
{
public:
  template <typename T>
  static MyClass Create(T value);
};


This obviously won't compileEDIT: Wait a second, this does compile, but I was wondering if there is a solution that will, but is it legal C++? Thanks a bunch in advance!

Sure, it's legal. Static functions act almost identical to global non-member functions, except where scoping is concerned.
