Delphi to C++
Posted on 2000-03-26
I know this is a Delphi area, but I think only Delphi-people will be able to give me an explanation I can understand.
In my job someone had the bright idea to start using Visual C++ in stead of Delphi. I don't want to start a discussion on who is beter but since I started working in visual C++ I'm running in one stupid problem after the other. The most silly is this. How the hell do you declare a global variable. If I declare one, I get the compiler complaining the symbol is declared more than once. If I declare the global variable static it compiles, but creates a copy of the variable in the two classes I need the variable in. If I make it a member of a class, it complains about not being able to access a static member from a non-static function etc etc.
Whatever happened to putting
myGlobal: integer; in your main unit and being able to access it anywhere you want????
Do I really have to go follow courses to be able to learn visual C++.
Anyway, this should be an ease 200 points for anyone who know visual C++ too.
