Why Can`t member function be called by pointer object of class/struct.

i was trying to call the member fuction of struct though pointer object it showed me error like

request for member 'Table::reveal' in `T1`, which is of non-class type 'Table*'

where,
Table is structure
reveal is member function
T1 is the object pointer object created though

typedef Table *Tptr;
             Tptr T1;

if yes please help me out

Member access through pointers is different. If you try to do something like T1.reveal() , you would get that error because the dot operator does not work with pointers. You need to dereference the pointer first, then do the access:

(*T1).reveal();

Because it is such a common operation, there is a special operator to make the whole thing simpler:

T1->reveal();

thank a lot.. i had never done this with the function..........................
