Hi, in this code i am trying to call the function "issueTicket" from class "ticket", in the the function "reserveCabin" in another class called "cruise".

Also, i think it is the same problem, i am trying to call function "calTicket" from class "booking", in the function "issueTicket" from class "ticket". im not exactly sure how to go about this, i have looked at ways of doing so. the best example i came across is in this thread:
http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread261407.html
the error says:
"in member function 'void cruise::reserveCabin()':"
"aggregate 'ticket tik1' has incomplete type and cannot be defined"

for all the parameters it has this error:

"expected primary-expression before" and then the name of the parameters

it has the same error message for the second function i wish to call.

the errors are on the lines: 266,267, and 299, jst to save u the time of looking through the code.

A couple of things: first, you are mixing your class definition and method implementations together. You need to separate these into a header file for the class definition, and a code file for the method implementations. A short example (using your "booking" class):

New booking.h file:

#include <string>
using namespace std;
class booking
{
public:
booking(); /* constructor */
float calTicket(int numpass, string ctype);
};

New booking.cpp file:

#include "booking.h"

float booking::calTicket(int numpass, string ctype)
{
// Stuff the method is supposed to do...
}

Once you have that all separated, you should be a lot better off (code will be much more readable, too). Also, you don't need the "Friend" declarations. In your code, you just need to include the proper header, then just declare an instance of the class you want to use.

i have done as u have said, and i am getting one error now:
[Linker Error] undefined reference to 'ticker::issueTicket(std::string, int, int, int, int, std::string, int)'
id returned 1 exit status

when i comment out this line my program runs:

tik1.issueTicket(name, cru, lvl, row, col, ctype, numpass);

i dont know wat else you will need to solve this problem, as i havnt came across it before

Edited 6 Years Ago by bill_: n/a

i jst got it working although, the class definition and class functions are in the same file, this is the way it worked 4 me. thanks to mcriscolo for your help

how did you manage to fix it?

i'm trying to do a similar program and came across the same error.

also, i was using :
void cruise::readInformation()
{
ifstream indata;
indata.open("cabinDistribution.txt");
if(!indata)
{
cout << "File could not be opened" << endl;
system("pause");
return;
}

for(int cabinLevel=0;cabinLevel<3;cabinLevel++)
{
for(int roomNumber= 0;roomNumber<13;roomNumber++)
{
for(int c=cabinColumn;cabinColumn<4;cabinColumn++)
{
indata >> rooms[cabinLevel][cabinColumn][roomNumber];
}
}
}

to write out instead. but this doesn't seem to work.
