beginner: get string/int/float from other class

win32/VC++6/beginner/stuck

in class
Chart2.ccp :
float ppdata [] = {
003.0f, 096.9f, 031.7f, 086.5f,
101.2f, 069.8f, 210.6f, 34.5f,
089.4f, 086.5f, 077.9f, 069.6f,
095.1f, 015.8f, 084.5f, 100.7f
};


in class w1Dlg.cpp
big need of those floats.
trying in w1Dlg.cpp:
float newppdata;
newppdata = chart2.ppdata[0];
but compiler is saying that ppdata is no element of CChart2.

if you want to help me please write some lines of accessing other classes string/int/float

thanks

Hi peter_b,

you declared the ppdata as a global variable, not as member of a class. Now we just would need to know what you need this for (do you want to use this array for all instances of the class or one array for each instantiated object of the class)

If you need only one array for all instances of the class you should declare it as static member of the class like this:

// in .h file
class CChart2
{
 ...
 static float ppdata[];
 ...
}

// in .cpp file
float CChart2::ppdata [] = {
         003.0f, 096.9f, 031.7f, 086.5f,
         101.2f, 069.8f, 210.6f, 34.5f,
         089.4f, 086.5f, 077.9f, 069.6f,
         095.1f, 015.8f, 084.5f, 100.7f
         };

so you can access it in two way like this:

void CW1Dlg::SaveProfile()
{
....
for (int i = 0; i < 15; i++)
{
 newppdata = chart2.ppdata[i]; // via the object
 // or
 newppdata = CChart2::ppdate[i]; // via the class
....
}
....
}


If you need one array for each instantiated object of this class the way to do it depends on what exactly you need. You can either use fixed-sized or dynamic arrays.


At last, as your code implies you need only one global array, there may be no need to hold ppdata as a member. Just declare it as you did as global (at file scope) declared array and declare it as extern wherever you need it like this:

// in chart2.cpp
float ppdata [] = {
         003.0f, 096.9f, 031.7f, 086.5f,
         101.2f, 069.8f, 210.6f, 34.5f,
         089.4f, 086.5f, 077.9f, 069.6f,
         095.1f, 015.8f, 084.5f, 100.7f
         };

// in w1dlg.cpp:
extern float ppdata[];
void CW1Dlg::SaveProfile()
{
 ...
 for (int i = 0; i < 15; i++)
 {
  newppdata = ppdata[i];
  ...
 }
 ...
}


hope that helps,

Some clarification questions:
Do you have a something like
class Chart2
{
float ppdata[];
....
};
 
Somewhere in your code you instantiate an object like
Chart2 chart2;

Then you want to access chart2.ppdata[0];

We need to see your real code. and the exact error message.  You shoudl be able to copy and paste them into the text box.
