Problem with template classes in DLLs

Hi,

  Does anyone know how I can get rid of this warning:

warning C4275: non dll-interface class 'ntfNotificationServer<enum ivNOTIFY_TYPE>' used as base for dll-interface class 'imageView'

The problem that I'm having is that the base class is a template class defined in a separate header file with no linkage specification:

template <class T> class ntfNotificationServer {...}

And used as a base for a class exported by the dll:

class ivDLLEXPORT imageView : public CView, public ivNotificationServer
{...}

ivDLLEXPORT is just a macro used to control dllimport/dllexport for .h & .cpp files.

I get the same warning from CView, but I can get rid of this one by predeclaring it like so:

class __declspec(dllimport) CView;

Unfortunately, if I do this for the template class, I have problems with inconsistant linkage for the member functions.

Thanks for any help,
Jerry

You need to declate the base class (template class) as __declspec(dllexport).

Try

template <class T> class DllExport ntfNotificationServer {...}

class ivDLLEXPORT imageView : public CView, public
ivNotificationServer
{...}

I assume you are indicating what type that ntfNotificationServer shoudl be expanded for in ImageView.  Right?  If not that is a problem.
