In the class A has a pointer P1 which has been defined point to function. The class A have function F1,F2,F3 too.In the F3 I write P1=F1; But it is wrong! when I want to build it.
class A
{
public:
int F1(int i);
int F2(int i);
int F3(int i);
int (*P1)(int i);
}

int F3(int i)
{
P1=F1;   //here will be wrong!
*P1(7);
}

pleas give me answer with exampl.
thank you.

The problem is that you are trying to get a pointer to a *member* function.  Pointers to members are not the same as ordinary pointers to functions.

Here is your code modified to use pointers to members.

class A
{
public:
int F1(int i);
int F2(int i);
int F3(int i);
int (A::*P1)(int i);
};

int F3(int i)
{
      A a;
      a.P1= A::F1;  
      
      (a.*a.P1)(7);
}

Depends what exactly you are trying to do.  You can encapsulate the behaviour of a member function pointer in a class, or you can call static member functions in the normal way.

The basic problem is thought that to call a method you need both an object instance and a method pointer.  Let me know more about what you want, and maybe I can help.
