Problem returning enum type

With the following declaration:

class CRDOTreeView
{
    ...
    enum TreeNodeType { ROOT, PAGE, IMAGE };
    TreeNodeType GetNodeType(HTREEITEM hTreeItem) const;
    ...
};

and the following implementation:

TreeNodeType CRDOTreeView::GetNodeType(HTREEITEM hTreeItem) const
{
    return PAGE;
}

I get the following compiler errors:

D:\dev\projects\RDOAPISample\RDOTreeView.cpp(313) : error C2143: syntax
error : missing ';' before 'tag::id'
D:\dev\projects\RDOAPISample\RDOTreeView.cpp(313) : error C2501:
'TreeNodeType' : missing storage-class or type specifiers
D:\dev\projects\RDOAPISample\RDOTreeView.cpp(313) : fatal error C1004:
unexpected end of file found

Can someone shed some light on this for me?  Thanks.

change
TreeNodeType CRDOTreeView::GetNodeType(HTREEITEM hTreeItem) const
to
CRDOTreeView::TreeNodeType CRDOTreeView::GetNodeType(HTREEITEM hTreeItem) const

since you declared the enum type inside the class, you need to resolve the namespace properly.
