compiler error C2475 - 'member_name' : forming a pointer-to-member requires explicit use of the address-of operator ('&') and a qualified name

Hi Experts,

I'm using an MFC app and have the following code which won't compile because of the error in question.  What's going on here?

CMyDlg dlg;
	if(dlg.DoModal != IDOK)

Open in new window

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Simple error, big effect - you forgot the brackets. Just use
CMyDlg dlg;
        if(dlg.DoModal() != IDOK) // <---!

Open in new window
