I have a class which uses, say, test.GetStr() to get the character Test1''s strength. How can I use a variable, like "attacker" instead of "test" to do that? --www.edf-project.org--

Well, you just create a variable named attacker which is of the right type...

I tried that, but I get an error that the variable does not have a member function GetStr() defined, or something like that.

Try using this:

attacker->GetStr();

if you dynamicly create an instance of a class, you have to use the -> to call your member functions...

I used that, it seems to help, but does not appear to work if "attacker" is a string. It says something to the effect of cannot use -> with non-pointer type string.

err.. if you have created a class, why aren''t you using it ? Why use a string ?

About what?

I get an error: " base operand of '->' has non-pointer type 'string' "

Is there another variable type I should use?

--www.edf-project.org--

_____EDIT_____
I need information from another class in that function. Is there a better way to do this?

I have a class, Hero. I then did "Hero test;" and "Hero test2;" They have a number of stats, with functions to set and retrieve them ( int GetStr(), void SetStr(int str) ) One function has test attack test2. To do this, I need some stats from each of the Heroes. I want to be able to use some kind of variable to determine which Hero is attacking, and which is being attacked, so I can get the appropriate stats. Right now, I am just trying to find a way to use a variable, attacker, instead of test, to call test.GetStr(). I would like to know if there is a better way to do all of this.

u can have a function like this
suppose u already have a function called: GiveDmg()

void Battle( Hero* enemy)
{
hp-=enemy->GiveDmg();
}


this is the simplest way i can think of at the moment
correct my if im wrong here ppl

Ok, someone already asked you but for some unknown reason, maybe you didn''t understand, post some code and then we will help you. In other words, post your class declaration at least so we can see what you''re actually trying to do...

create numerical ID in hero class, then u refer to that ID to determine which person is attacking. its that simple.
