Hi, I would like to know how to make it so class A can have a pointer to an instance of class B while class B can have a pointer to am instance of Class A.

Ive tryed defining them in two files:


#include "ClassB.h"

class cA{
cB* pointer;


#include "ClassA.h"

class cB{
cA* pointer;

but get errors saying class B is undefined and it cant make a pointer.

Ive also tryed having both classes in the same file but that produces similar results, am I missing something realy obvious or is it imposible to create this sort of 'loop' structure?

Thanks in advanced for any help :)
