How to pass collection classes as argument for template & non-template type???

I've tried both but failed..... quite frustrating...

In my code,

CStringArray aString;
CArray <CString, LPCSTR> str;
CMyClass obj;

obj.method(aString, str);

=======
void CMyClass::
      method(CStringArray aStr, CArray<CString, LPCSTR> str)
{
   ......
}

Then I got this error

C2664: cannot convert parameter 1 from 'class CStringArray' to 'class CStringArray'

======
Pls show me the right way.... Thanks......

CStringArray & CArray can not be copied.  The "method" member functon when called attempts to generate a copy into the local variables used by the procedure.

(1) Use a reference or pointer to the type in the function declaration, to avoid copying, OR (2) derive a class from CArray/CStringArray which includes copying functionality.

A reference would look like this:

     void CMyClass::
           method(CStringArray& aStr, CArray<CString, LPCSTR>& str)
     {
        ......
     }


note the ampersands

Remember method is working with with the original variable now (under a "pseudo name").  If "method" is not supposed to be able to change the array variables, add const to one or both array parameters :

     void CMyClass::
           method( const CStringArray& aStr, const CArray<CString, LPCSTR>& str)
     {
        ......
     }
