Borland C++, Calling public function from parent form

Posted on 2007-11-15
Last Modified: 2010-04-21
I have 2 forms. TBowling calls TFormGame, but how can I call MoveBowlingPin from TFormGame?
__fastcall TBowling::TBowling(TComponent* Owner)
    : TForm(Owner)
    FormGame = new TFormGame(this);
void TBowling::MoveBowlingPin(int id, double x, double y, double z, double rx, double ry, double rz)
    for(int i=0;i<Figures->Count;i++)
        Figure3d *figure = ((Figure3d*)Figures->Items[i]);
        if(figure->kind == id)
// --------------------------------------------------
__fastcall TFormGame::TFormGame(TComponent* Owner)
    : TForm(Owner)
    // Code to call
    // MoveBowlingPin( ... ) ?

you have to post back a message with PostMessage() function, and override the DefWndProc() function of the parent dialog.

Since your 'TBowling' class is the owner of 'TFormGame', you could just

__fastcall TFormGame::TFormGame(TComponent* Owner)
    : TForm(Owner)
    TBowling* p =(TBowling*) Owner;
    p->MoveBowlingPin( ... );
