Okay. I have class B which I want to incorporate previously declared class A into. All well and good. But, how would I put a pointer to a class B into class A, without getting a compiler error?

Forward declare:

class B; // Forward declare
class A {
private:
B *m_pB;
};
class B {
private:
A *m_pA;
};


Note this only works for pointers/references.

hi,

you can use class forward declaration,


write only above class A:

class B;

class A
{
...
}

and before class B:

class A;

class B
{
...
}
