I''m quite new to templates, this is what i''m trying to do...
template 
t CListManager::operator [](unsigned int i)
{
	return m_data;
}
 
bool CVisualisation::RenderPrimitive(int id, D3DXVECTOR3 &pos)
{
	return ((CGfxEntityPrimitive*)m_pPrimitiveList[id - 1])->Render(pos);
}
 
But it says i cannot convert from ''CListManager'' to ''CGfxEntityPrimitive *''. Any other way of doing this? Regards, bangz. http://www.bangz.co.uk

I think that operator precedence is biting you in the ass here. Put in some parentheses to make it clearer to the compiler.

Yup, silly mistake...


return ((CGfxEntityPrimitive*)(*m_pPrimitiveList)[id - 1])->Render(pos);

as m_pPrimitiveList is a pointer I needed to dereference it before i used the [] operator!




Thanks,
bangz.
