How to pass a member function to a template class?

class widget
{
public:
 bool SomeFunc(void);
};

template<class T>
class MyTemplateClass
{
public:
 MyTemplateClass(????? MemberFunction);
 ??????? m_MemberFunction;
};

If I want to pass widget::SomeFunct to the MyTemplateClass, what syntax do I have to use.
Please provide working example.

     return true;
}

};


template<class T>
class MyTemplateClass
{
public:
typedef bool (T::*widget_ptr)();

MyTemplateClass(widget_ptr f)
{
     m_MemberFunction = f;
}

void DoIt()
{
     widget w;
     (w.*m_MemberFunction)();
}

widget_ptr m_MemberFunction;
};


int main()

   return 0;
}

Hope this helps
