Hi, I have a vector of classes, and I need to initialize each one... so when I declare my vector I do apvector b(0); this declares a vector of buildings of size 0. now, when I want to initialize each one, what do i do? b.resize(1); //resize the vector b[0] = building("building name", 5); this gets an error of "Call of nonfunction" any ideas?

Two possibilities:

  1. Use an array of pointers, or...
  2. Make sure your objects have a copy constructor/assignment operator and copy them into the vector.


For the latter:

class Foo
{
public :
//Constructor

Foo (int i)
{
m_num = i;
}

//Copy constructor

Foo (const Foo &rhs)
{
*this = rhs;
}

//Assignment operator

void operator = (const Foo &rhs)
{
m_num = rhs.m_num;
}

private :
int m_num;
};

...
std::vector <Foo> myVector;

//Make enough room (not strictly necessary)

myVector.reserve (15);

//Add 15 objects

for (int i = 0; i < 15; i++)
{
//Create new object

Foo temp (i);

//Add a copy into the vector

myVector.push_back (temp);
}
...

b.push_back(building("building name", 5));

is more compact and efficient than

b.resize(1)
b[0] = building("building name", 5);

Read the post more closely, guys. This is an apvector, used for the Advanced Placement tests. There is no push_back.

Now, you say you get a compile error? What''s the exact error, and on what line is it? Try initializing your array to at least a single element.
