Error - Cannot call member function without object...

Hello Everyone,

I have a function in a header (KeyDialog.h) as such:

void setKey(Key&);

The function implementation is as such (KeyDialog.cpp) :

void KeyDialog::setK ey(Key& k1)
{
Key::Key K1 = k1;
//unimportant
}

And I'm calling this function from another cpp file (mainwindow.cpp )
like so:

KeyDialog::setK ey(enter);

When I compile I get the error: Cannot call member function 'void
KeyDialog::setK ey(Key&)' without object...

This is probably stupidly simple, what am i missing?

You are missing an object. Try one of these in the other cpp file:

KeyDialog kd;
kd.setKey( enter );

There is probably some other fundamental error in your code though. It
may be that your "setKey" function doesn't need an object and therefore
should not be in the KeyDialog class.

Wow, I feel a bit stupid...a bit of a duh moment...

I had:

KeyDialog dialog(this);
KeyDialog::setK ey(enter);
dialog.exec();

When of course i needed to have:

KeyDialog dialog(this);
dialog.setKey(e nter);
dialog.exec();

Thank you very much, your small bit of code helped tremendously

Please help I don't know if this is possible but what I would really like to do is to use On Error Goto to capture the code that is being executed when an error occurs. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

The following code snippet shows that VC++ 7.1 correctly compiles a static member function invocation from an Unrelated class, since this static member function is public. I expected to compile the same invocation from a DistantlyRelated class. What actually happened was that the compiler produced: error C2247: 'A::function' not accessible because 'CloselyRelated' uses 'private' to inherit from 'A' I'm guessing that the above compiler...

Hello, If anyone can give me some insight as to why this code fails to compile, I would be most appreciative. I have only been able to test it with gcc 3.4.4 and gcc 4.2.1, which both fail with different errors (details below). //////// begin test_bug.cpp // Standard Type2Type from Alexandrescu's Modern C++ Design
