Since C++ is an object-oriented language, program is designed using objects and classes in C++.
In C++, Object is a real world entity, for example, chair, car, pen, mobile, laptop etc.
In other words, object is an entity that has state and behavior. Here, state means data and behavior means functionality.
Object is a runtime entity, it is created at runtime.
Object is an instance of a class. All the members of the class can be accessed through object.
Let's see an example to create object of student class using s1 as the reference variable.
In this example, Student is the type and s1 is the reference variable that refers to the instance of Student class.
In C++, object is a group of similar objects. It is a template from which objects are created. It can have fields, methods, constructors etc.
Let's see an example of C++ class that has three fields only.
C++ Object and Class Example
Let's see an example of class that has two fields: id and name. It creates instance of the class, initializes the object and prints the object value.
C++ Class Example: Initialize and Display data through method
Let's see another example of C++ class where we are initializing and displaying object through method.
C++ Class Example: Store and Display Employee Information
Let's see another example of C++ class where we are storing and displaying employee information using method.
