Serialization

Could someone tell me what is wrong with the following code. I am getting errors when I try to load prefs. Also...it doesn't look like they are writing correctly either.


m_profIRCProfile is a Pointer to a CUserProfile...

void CGoIRCApp::LoadPrefs(void)
{
      CFileStatus fs;
      if(CFile::GetStatus("userprefs.dat", fs))
      {
        CFile prefFile("userprefs.dat", CArchive::load);
            CArchive arLoad(&prefFile, CArchive::load);

            CUserProfile* ptrProf = (CUserProfile*) arLoad.ReadObject(RUNTIME_CLASS(CUserProfile));
            m_profIRCProfile = new CUserProfile(ptrProf);
      }
}

void CGoIRCApp::StorePrefs(void)
{
      CFile myFile("userprefs.dat", CFile::modeCreate | CFile::modeReadWrite);

      CArchive arStore(&myFile, CArchive::store);

      arStore.WriteObject(m_profIRCProfile);

      arStore.Close();
}

Serialize is not getting called at all. I have DECLARE_SERIAL in the .h and IMPLEMENT_SERIAL in the .cpp. What is going on?

Why are you using CArchive::load here ? Shouldn't it be some CFile:: flag like CFile::modeRead ?
