I'm trying to use new with memory that already been allocated, but I keep getting a compile error.

new ((void*)SomePtr) T(NewValue);

T is a template type.

Did you use include <new>?

The complete code is to large, and the function that contains the above code I posted only has two lines of code.
void push_back(const T& NewValue)
 new ((void*)ptr+VSize) T(NewValue);

No, I didn't.

Do I have to use std::new with this?
