Static members with VC++ 5.0

I'm using VC++ 5.0 and I have static members in a class that I wrote.
I'm trying to assign values to them from the outside, but I get an error that looks like this:

ipserialDlg.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "public: static int  CMyDataSocket::m_ReadState" (?m_ReadState@CMyDataSocket@@2HA)
MyDataSocket.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "public: static int  CMyDataSocket::m_ReadState" (?m_ReadState@CMyDataSocket@@2HA)

m_ReadState is the member, and it was declared like this:
static BOOL m_ReadState;

ipserialDlg is the program that's trying to set the variables, with code that looks like this:
CMyDataSocket::mReadState=TRUE;

Any ideas?  I am using bad syntax?

The LNK2001 error is usually occurred when the file containing the sympol is not included in the file using the symbol. Check to see whether you include the file containing the class CMyDataSocket.

Yup.  It's included and I'm still getting the error.

I think use extern m_ReadState; BOOL m_ReadState=TRUE; at the begining of your file can correct this error.

Have you initialized your static variable? If not, write a statement like this:

BOOL CMyDataSocket::m_ReadState = TRUE;

at the beginning of the MyDataSocket.cpp file.
