So I am starting on doing some class stuff with SFML problem is, my sprite doesnt seem to be drawing correctly, can anyone see any errors with my code?

 

Player.h

#pragma once
#include "Game.h"


class Player
{
public:
	Player();
	~Player();

	void Draw(sf::RenderWindow &window);

	int playerSpeed = 1;

private:
	sf::Texture playerTexture;
	sf::Sprite playerImage;
};

Player.cpp

#include "Player.h"

Player::Player()
{
	if (!playerTexture.loadFromFile("images/player.png"))
	{
		std::cout << "Can't load the player image";
	}

	playerImage.setTexture(playerTexture);
	playerImage.setPosition(200, 200);
}


Player::~Player()
{
}


void Player::Draw(sf::RenderWindow &window){
	window.draw(playerImage);
	std::cout << "DRAWN";
}

Game.cpp

#include "Game.h"

Game::Game()
{
}


Game::~Game()
{
}

void Game::Setup(){
}

void Game::Update(sf::RenderWindow &window){
	//std::cout << "TEST";
	Setup();
	Draw(window);
}

void Game::Draw(sf::RenderWindow &window){
	Player player;
	player.Draw(window);
}

main.cpp

#include <SFML/Graphics.hpp>
#include "Game.h"

int main()
{
	sf::RenderWindow window(sf::VideoMode(800, 600), "SFML works!");
	
	while (window.isOpen())
	{
		sf::Event event;
		while (window.pollEvent(event))
		{
			if (event.type == sf::Event::Closed)
				window.close();
		}

		Game game;
		game.Update(window);


		window.clear();
		window.display();
	}

	return 0;
}

It prints "DRAWN" fine, just doesnt seem to draw the image :/

You draw in game.Update().

Then you clear the window, probably erasing the stuff you drew inside game.Update().

Then you display the cleared window.

 

As an aside, I would recommend splitting updates from draws, to prevent this kind of thing.

AHA! Yes I forgot that you have to draw below window.clear, I make this mistake everytime, normally have to look at my recent projects. Many thanks for this pointer :) Draw and Update are now seperate.
