Override Method fun
« on: August 22, 2006, 07:09:25 pm »
(I've submitted this as a bug to support but I was curious if anybody had edited their macro files as a workaround)

In a C++ file, given a setup like this:

Code: [Select]
namespace A
{
    class fred
    {
    public:
        virtual DoSomething();
    };
}

namespace Z
{
    class derived : public A::fred
    {
    }
}

Selecting "override method" in the derived class will result in either a "no overridable methods" pop up or a "this functionality is disabled here" message on the command line.

Removing the namespace ("A::") from fred
(or)
Code: [Select]
class derived : public fred
{
}

Will cause the overridable methods to function correctly (but then, it doesn't compile...) 

As anyone else come up with a slick-c fix? (I traced down several levels to at least confirm that it looks fixable in slick-c but didn't get any further)

I was not able to reproduce this issue in 11.0.1, but, I did have to make a minor change to your example, since "DoSomething" was not being recognized as a prototype since it's return type was missing.

If this is more than a typo in your example, I suggest setting "def_ctags_flags" (Macro > Set Macro Variable...) to 6, which turns on a flag that tells our parser not to ignore old style C prototypes with missing return types.

You're right that sample does work... (apologies, I was recreating it from observations and didn't actually test the sample)

It appears that if the namespace/declarations are in the same file than it works fine... so to revise: (and this is simplified from actual code)

In one file I've got an XML parser declaration:

Code: [Select]
file: XMLParser.h

namespace XML
{
class XMLParser
{
protected:
     virtual void StartElement(const char* name, const char** atts)
     {
     }
};
}

Then in another file (a .cpp file, but I don't think that's important)
Code: [Select]
file: test.cpp
namespace B
{
class Sam : public XML::XMLParser
{

};
}

Both files are in the current workspace project.

If you right click in Sam (between the braces) and do override method than you'll get a pop-up box of "No overridable methods found".  If you remove 'XML::' from the XMLParser base declaration and right click on override method, you'll get StartElement as an option to select.

(I'm running version 11.0.1)

Batting zero here.  That example works too.  Have you tried rebuilding the workspace tag file?
