We consider a coupled nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation, which can be reduced to the generalized NLS equation by constituting a certain constraint. We first construct a generalized Darboux transformation (DT) for the coupled NLS equation. Then, by using the resulting DT, we analyse the solutions with vanishing boundary condition and non-vanishing boundary condition, respectively, including positon wave, breather wave and higher-order rogue wave solutions for the coupled NLS equation. Moreover, in order to better understand the dynamic behavior, the characteristics of these solutions are discussed through some diverting graphics under different parameters choices.
