Im reading a book in visual c++, Im trying to use the Add Member Function wizard, but it wont add the function definition to the header, but it does add to the cpp file. It seems it WILL add to the header if both the type and param are the class name. Anyone know how i can fix this, or at least why its not adding?

Are you really sure? That's not normal. Maybe you are not noticing that some added function declarations are "grayed", but there exist.
Try to compile, if succeed, then function declaration is there.

hmm... i could try... but even in the book it shows what the final code SHOULD look like and only one of the three that it says to add accually gets added to the header. It doesnt even show up in the class view list. From what ive learnt it will compile either way, just a matter of wiether or not you want inline or not wouldnt it?

CBox operator+(const CBox& aBox) const   gets added but..
CBox operator*(int n) const  does not, but the cpp file shows it as,
CBox CBox::operator*(...) const ... so there should be a definition in the header right? otherwise whats the point of CBox:: ? Now im really confused ;)

I just tried to add the member funtcions and compile like you said and heres the debug info...

--------------------Configuration: classes - Win32 Debug--------------------
Compiling...
Box.cpp
C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\C\VC6\classes\Box.cpp(27) : error C2039: '*' : is not a member of 'CBox'
        c:\windows\desktop\c\vc6\classes\box.h(13) : see declaration of 'CBox'
C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\C\VC6\classes\Box.cpp(28) : error C2270: '*' : modifiers not allowed on nonmember functions
Error executing cl.exe.

classes.exe - 2 error(s), 0 warning(s)

The line of code it refers to is the function added to the .cpp but not .h file..

CBox CBox::operator *(int n) const {}

In your class header there should be lines like that:

      //{{AFX_VIRTUAL(CTestDlg)

      //}}AFX_VIRTUAL


Class Wizard adds new prototypes between these two comments. If these are missing or changed, it will fail.

Also these two comments are needed for handler functions (non-virtual)

      //{{AFX_MSG(CTestDlg)

      //}}AFX_MSG

There are many situations in where Visual Studio IDE don't work as expected, some bug has been corrected in differents Software Packs (up to SP6 I guess) but some others no.
So, if after reinstalling still works the same, don't worry and do it manually.
