Hopefully my last question for awhile, I wrote a piece of code like this before, but now I get the error:
error C2064: term does not evaluate to a function taking 2 arguments

Here is my code:

Help would be great, and you can have to calculator when it's finished (lol)


Sorry for the incorrect title. I had the error earlier, but fixed it myself, and forgot to change it.

Which line is the error on?

As an aside, this looks like C#, so if you don't get the answer you need here, consider posting there.

Yeah you should post in the C# forum because C++/CLI uses .NET
People like "Moschops" don't even know what C++/CLI is.

Sarcasm? I hope. Cause this is c++

>>Sarcasm? I hope. Cause this is c++

No. It's not! C++/CLI is not C++. It's a completely different language and it's more akin to C# than anything else.

Sarcasm? I hope. Cause this is c++

It's not straight C++. This operator that you're using alot: ^, in C++ is only the bitwise XOR operator. In your code above, it carries a different meaning.

gcnew is a variant on new that adds garbage collection - straight C++ has no built-in garbage collection.

There are other clues too, but the crux of it is that you're not coding in straight C++. You're not the first be coding in C++/CLI and not realise it :)

That said, we can probably still help you, but we'd rather not wade through all your code in search of the error; presumably your error message indicates which line is erroneous?

Sorry, thought I included that. Line 76
