Your printbasket function seems to be fine.

This is not a solution but it would make it easier to read if you used indention to show scope.

The problem does not appear to be in printbasket.

Look at fish::printme. Are the different fish classes derived from the fish class? Calling printMe() from a Fish pointer will call the fish handler if no inhertitance is used. You obviously want it to call fishtype::printme()

This is what you need, if you don't already know about virtual methods and inheritance you should read about it.


class Fish
{
public:
virtual void PrintMe()=0;
};

class FishType : public Fish
{
virtual void PrintMe();
};
