Error 2629: unexpected 'class ClassA ('

Hi there,

Sorry if I explain this badly, I'm not quite sure what is relevant.

I'm getting the error above when I try to compile my project.  The line in question is in ClassA.h and looks something like:

ClassA(ClassB* theParent, type theType);

where type is a typedef inside classA and ClassB is #included above the constructor.

There's another error on the same line:
Error C2238: unexpected token(s) preceding ';'

The error seems to come up while compiling a third class which does not refer to ClassB or ClassA or refer to anything that does.

The problem arose when I moved the typedef from another unrelated class and put it in ClassA.  This typedef is used as a parameter and return type for several functions both inside and outside ClassA (but not in ClassB or either of the other two classes I mentioned)

What's going on?  I'm very confused.

Thank you.

Did you miss a semi-colon at the end when declaring class EyeSpeakPage? Because it's saying it does not recognize EyeSpeakPage as a type?

Well, I wasn't declaring class EyeSpeakPage at all.  
But doing so seems to have fixed all the errors.  I'd swear I'd tried that on Friday, oh well.

Thank you very much, I think that was close enough to being the answer!
