C++ Constructor

In C++, constructor is a special method which is invoked automatically at the time of object creation. It is used to initialize the data members of new object generally. The constructor in C++ has the same name as class or structure.

There can be two types of constructors in C++.

  • Default constructor
  • Parameterized constructor

C++ Default Constructor

A constructor which has no argument is known as default constructor. It is invoked at the time of creating object.

Let's see the simple example of C++ default Constructor.

C++ Parameterized Constructor

A constructor which has parameters is called parameterized constructor. It is used to provide different values to distinct objects.

Let's see the simple example of C++ Parameterized Constructor.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
class Employee {
       int id;//data member (also instance variable)    
       string name;//data member(also instance variable)
       float salary;
       Employee(int i, string n, float s)  
            id = i;  
            name = n;  
            salary = s;
       void display()  
            cout<<id<<"  "<<name<<"  "<<salary<<endl;  
int main(void) {
    Employee e1 =Employee(101, "Sonoo", 890000); //creating an object of Employee 
    Employee e2=Employee(102, "Nakul", 59000); 
    return 0;


101  Sonoo  890000
102  Nakul  59000
