TypeScript Generic Class


Example

class Result<T> {
    constructor(public wasSuccessful: boolean, public error: T) {
    }

    public clone(): Result<T> {
       ...
    }
}

let r1 = new Result(false, 'error: 42');  // Compiler infers T to string
let r2 = new Result(false, 42);           // Compiler infers T to number
let r3 = new Result<string>(true, null);  // Explicitly set T to string
let r4 = new Result<string>(true, 4);     // Compilation error because 4 is not a string
