The class HalfedgeDS_items_2 is a model of the HalfedgeDSItems concept. It uses the default types for vertices, halfedges, and faces that declare all incidences supported by a HalfedgeDS. The vertex also contains a point of type Traits::Point_2, where Traits is the template argument of the corresponding HalfedgeDS.

#include <CGAL/HalfedgeDS_items_2.h>

The following example shows the canonical implementation of the HalfedgeDS_items_2 class. It uses the base classes for the item types that are provided in the library.

struct HalfedgeDS_items_2 {
    template < class Refs, class Traits>
    struct Vertex_wrapper {
        typedef typename Traits::Point_2 Point;
        typedef CGAL::HalfedgeDS_vertex_base< Refs, Tag_true, Point> Vertex;
    template < class Refs, class Traits>
    struct Halfedge_wrapper {
        typedef CGAL::HalfedgeDS_halfedge_base< Refs> Halfedge;
    template < class Refs, class Traits>
    struct Face_wrapper {
        typedef CGAL::HalfedgeDS_face_base< Refs> Face;

The following example shows a class definition for a new items class derived from the HalfedgeDS_items_2 class. It replaces the Face_wrapper with a new definition of a face that contains a member variable for color. The new face makes use of the face base class provided in the library.

// A face type with a color member variable.
template <class Refs>
struct My_face : public CGAL::HalfedgeDS_face_base<Refs> {
    CGAL::Color color;
    My_face() {}
    My_face( CGAL::Color c) : color(c) {}

// An items type using my face.
struct My_items : public CGAL::HalfedgeDS_items_2 {
    template <class Refs, class Traits>
    struct Face_wrapper {
        typedef My_face<Refs> Face;
