How about a new escape constant "NoChange" (or whatever name fits), use that way :I tried to do that change and now I think that it's very nontrivial: not sure anymore that it's a good move! Here's what makes me change my mind. Look at what happens when you do: Matrix<float,3,4> m; m.resize(4); How to interprete this? Should this be a NOP or a failed assertion? There are many such issues in Matrix.h alone and I am afraid that any way to allow that will result in a much more complex Matrix.h and less consistent API.... BenoitHmm fair enough. If it really is too hard to change tho API then maybe good documentation is the best approach. I've made some for you to copy/paste: A.resize(NoChange, 7);Robert At the end of 'Matrix and vector types' in the tutorial: ------------- For dynamically sized matrices, where the size of one or both dimensions is unspecified at compile time use the special value Eigen::Dynamic. For example, VectorXd is a typedef for Matrix<double, Dynamic, 1> As with statically sized matrices the static dimensions can be any size. The following are all valid: Matrix<double, 6, Dynamic> // Dynamic number of columns Matrix<double, Dynamic, 2> // Dynamic number of rows Matrix<double, Dynamic, Dynamic> // Fully dynamic Matrix<double, 13, 3> // Fully static Partially dynamic matrices use all the same API calls as fully dynamic matrices, but the fixed dimension must remain constant or an assertion will fail. Matrix<double, 2, Dynamic> A; // OK, 2x0 matrix. Matrix<double, 2, Dynamic> B(3); // Error, wrong constructor. Matrix<double, 2, Dynamic> C(5, 7); // Error, number of rows is inconsistent. Matrix<double, 2, Dynamic> D(2, 7); // OK. The same is true of the resize() function. A.resize(3); // Error, wrong function. A.resize(5, 7); // Error, number of rows is inconsistent. A.resize(2, 7); // OK. ------------ For Matrix::resize(int): ------------ Resizes *this to a vector of length size. This only works for vectors (Matrix<?, Dynamic, 1> or Matrix<?, 1, Dynamic>). It does not work for partially dynamic matrices when the static dimension is anything other than 1. For example it will not work with Matrix<double, 2, Dynamic>. To resize matrices of this type use resize(int, int). ------------ For Matrix::resize(int, int): ----------- Makes sense for dynamic- or partially dynamic-size matrices only. For partially dynamic sized matrices the static dimension must be (redundantly unfortunately) given. For example: Matrix<double, Dynamic, 2> A(10, 2); // Create a 10x2 matrix. A.resize(20, 2); // Expand it to 20x2. A.resize(10, 3); // This is an error. ---------- For Matrix(int, int): --------- ....default constructor Matrix() instead. For partially dynamic sized matrices you must pass both the static and dynamic sizes, for example Matrix<double, Dynamic, 2> A(10, 3); // Error. Matrix<double, Dynamic, 2> A(10, 2); // OK, Creates a 10x2 matrix. ---------- Even if you change it in future it would be good to add this documentation. And I've written it all for you so no excuses! :-) Tim --
