Rookie in need of help here. How do I set up a pointer to a class function in C++? e.g. Say I have a directdraw wrapper class called ''ddraw'', which has two blit functions, ''bltfullscreen()'' for a fullscreen mode blit, and ''bltwindow()'' for a windowed mode blit. How do I then setup a function pointer ddraw->blt() which calls the relevant function. By setup, I mean how do I define, and how to I assign the pointer variable? Thanks, Marty.

Ok let''s say this is your class:

class ddraw {
void bltfullscreen(void);
void bltwindow(void);

void (ddraw::*blt)(void);

Then blt should be a function pointer that can be assigned either bltfullscreen or bltwindow.

To use it:

int main() {
ddraw * d = new ddraw();
d->blt = ddraw::bltfullscreen;
