      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

Problem with functions!

10 posts in this topic

I would like to create buttons. And when you click them, do some functions.
But i have problem with button actions [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png[/img].

Some of my code:

[CODE]
//---- Header File----
class Button{
public:
//variables initiating like float x,y,z...
void func(void);
void draw(){
//Some drawing
}
void CheckButtonClick(float mx, float my,int key,int state){
if(mx >= x && mx <= x+w &&
my >= y && my <= y+h &&
state == 0 && key == 0){
click = true;
func();
}else
click = false;
}
};

//----Main File----

void AddButton(Button &button,string text,void func(),float x,float y,float z,float w,float h,float s,float r,float g,float b,GLuint tex,GLuint clicktex){
button.tex = tex;
button.clicktex = clicktex;
button.func() = func();
button.textsize = s;
button.text = text;
button.x = x;
button.y = y;
button.z = z;
button.w = w;
button.h = h;
button.color[0] = r;
button.color[1] = g;
button.color[2] = b;
}


Button button_file,

void close(){
exit(0);
}


void InitRendering(){

_buttondark = loadTexture ("Data/IvoGui/buttondark.tga");
_buttondark_click = loadTexture ("Data/IvoGui/buttondark_click.tga");

AddButton(button_help,"Pomoc",close(),133,5,0.001f,64,16,0.9f,1.0f,1.0f,1.0f,_buttondark,_buttondark_click);
}
[/CODE]

It gives me an error:
[CODE]
invalid use of void expression
[/CODE]

Without button actions everything works fine.
Can you help me with this actions?

Thanks in advance. Edited by iwoplaza

[CODE]Button button_file,[/CODE]

I think you mistyped a semicolon here, but I'm pretty sure it's a copy/paste mistake. This is followed by a "void", which explains the error message (C++ compiler errors generally make no sense if you made a typo, so you have to look through to try and find it), but I doubt this is the source of the error, could you post the revised code if this is so?

"Button button_file," was a copy/paste mistake [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]. But if you want i can give you code that is needed (some of header file, some of main that is about button), or a full code for a further investigation. Edited by iwoplaza

This is not legal:
[code]
button.func() = func();
[/code]
You cannot assign to a function. In your current code, you would have to create a concrete implementation of Button::func.

If you have a newish compiler you can handle this using std::function. If you are using an older compiler and cannot upgrade, boost::function is an option. You could also fall back to function pointers for simple functions, and a pure virtual interface class for more complex scenarios.

You have declared a function. C++ requires this function to have a single definition.

You appear to want to design a callback system, where you can given different Buttons different functions to call when they are clicked. C++ doesn't have "first class" support for this at the language level, but it can be simulated using the approaches I've outlined.

Please proceed, and write modified piece of code.

function pointers: [url="http://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial/function-pointers.html"]http://www.cprogramm...n-pointers.html[/url] (C way of doing it, only use this if the other two options are unsuitable for you)
std::function: [url="http://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/utility/functional/function"]http://en.cppreferen...tional/function[/url] (Use this if your compiler is modern enough)

Great. Another aspect of community etiquette is to post the solution. This way, people who search the forums later on know what worked for you.
