Hey!

I´m currently working on a Load/Save Routine and got it working quite fine already..
here is a part of the code:

IO.h

#ifndef _IO_H_
#define _IO_H_

#include "globals.h"
#include "Writer.h"

class IO
{
public:
IO(string filename);
string iofile;

bool SaveWriter(Writer &refData);
bool LoadWriter(Writer &refData);


};
#endif




Writer.h

#ifndef _WRITER_H_
#define _WRITER_H_

#include "globals.h"
#include "IO.h"
#include "Dialog.h"

class Writer
{
public:
Writer();

{...}
};

#endif




when compiling i get

... IO.h(12): error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'Writer'


what did i do wrong... the longer i program in cpp the less i know how to do what ^^ -.-


thanks for yout time and help,
jan

looks like your files are getting confused as they are tryinging to link to each other. Try removing

#include "Writer.h"

and replace it with

class Writer;

Organizing Code Files in C and C++ covers breaking up circular #includes on page 3 some.

It's often a good idea to try to break up such cycles in the code itself, however -- having two classes depend on each other makes them hard or impossible to test or debug individually. Just something to keep in mind for the future.
