don't understand why I am getting error C2629: unexpected 'myclass ('

Win2K,C++,MFC,VS.NET

I am breaking a large (~40K line) monolithic program down into multiple dll's.  In the course of this, I am having to change the way include files are handled.  For the include of one of my dialog classes, I changed the order of includes at the top of the header and now I keep getting

error C2629: unexpected 'myclass('

at the constructor line.


I have even commented _everything_ out above the class declaration & I still get the error.  Code is below:

class select_view_sort : public CDialog
{
// Construction
public:
      select_view_sort( CWnd* pParent = NULL,
                                    influx* ptr_hardware = NULL,
                                    class sort_control* ptr_msc = NULL,
                                    class depProc* ptr_depProc = NULL );   // standard constructor

      BOOL Create(int x,int y);
      void right_sort_done(void);
                ...


Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?

Thanks,
je

This can be caused by out-of-sync precompiled header files. Remove the file that stores the precompiled header information (you can find out which file this is by checking the project settings).

Correction: Not which file, but wether you are using precompiled headers. The file is a .pch file in your Debug or Release directory (or whatever your output directory is).

If it is a precompiled header problem, then selecting "Clean" before "Rebuild" will usually fix the problem.

If that does not help, then you need to look at each of the headers that is included.  I'll guess that there is a missing } or something like that.

instead of
select_view_sort( CWnd* pParent = NULL,
                              influx* ptr_hardware = NULL,
                              class sort_control* ptr_msc = NULL,
                              class depProc* ptr_depProc = NULL );   // standard constructor

try
select_view_sort( CWnd* pParent = NULL,
                              influx* ptr_hardware = NULL,
                              sort_control* ptr_msc = NULL,
                              depProc* ptr_depProc = NULL );   // standard constructor


if that doesn't work then add the following lines
class sort_control;
class depProc;

before
class select_view_sort : public CDialog
{


and see if that makes any difference.
