Hello-

I am using Borland C++ Builder 5, and have run into a bit of a problem.  I have extended the TComboBox class to add a little bit of functionality that I needed.  That worked without a hitch.  The problem that I am running into is that the opeartor= does not seem to be working in the extended class.

If i write a line like:
WebgistixPackageType[currentPosition] = (WebgistixPackageType->MoreItems->Strings[WebgistixPackageType->ItemIndex]);

I get an error like:
[C++ Error] WebgistixWarehouse.cpp(820): E2285 Could not find a match for 'WebgistixComboBox::operator =(AnsiString)'

So it seems that I need to overload (or atleast create) the '=' operator for AnsiString.  Can someone give me some help on this?  Thanks!

Nick

It looks to me that you are trying to assign a single Item. Have you tried:

WebgistixPackageType->Items[currentPosition]=yada...

DrDelphi-

That just brings out this error:

[C++ Error] WebgistixWarehouse.cpp(711): E2285 Could not find a match for 'WebgistixComboBox::operator =(TStrings)'

I can't figure out why the operator= isn't being inherited, by WebgistixComboBox.

Actually, you are sorta right.  I was supposed to be assigning the value to an array that was similarly named.  In my haste i typed in the wrong value.  Bad naming conventions == bad programming!  Thanks!
