I have the following in C++:

class Base
    void Foo() { ... }

class Derived : public Base

I then bind these types as follows:

RegisterObjectType("Base",     0, asOBJ_REF | asOBJ_NOCOUNT);
RegisterObjectType("Derived",  0, asOBJ_REF | asOBJ_NOCOUNT);

RegisterObjectMethod("Base", "void Foo()", asMETHODPR(Base, Foo, (), void), asCALL_THISCALL);

RegisterObjectBehaviour("Base", asBEHAVE_REF_CAST, "Derived@ f()", asFUNCTION((refCast<Base,Derived>)), asCALL_CDECL_OBJLAST);
RegisterObjectBehaviour("Derived", asBEHAVE_IMPLICIT_REF_CAST, "Base@ f()", asFUNCTION((refCast<Derived,Base>)), asCALL_CDECL_OBJLAST);

Then in script I have the following:

void main(Derived& d)

I expect the registered implicit conversion to apply to 'd' and call (in C++) d.Foo(), which should resolve to Base's Foo(). However, I get the following compilation error:


No matching signatures to 'Derived::Foo()'


Am I doing anything wrong with how I'm registering the implicit cast? Or would it only take effect for assignment/function params/etc and not what I'm trying to do?


Thank you very much.
