C++ "FIND_IF" & VECTORS

I have the following snippet below for a vector class. It's called "DDClass" Mainly, since it will handle my damage done on ships.

I get the following error:
2>..\sf\frontier\src\portcpp\DesignedClass.cpp(1669): error C3867: 'DesignedClass::FindCondition': function call missing argument list; use '&DesignedClass::FindCondition' to create a pointer to member


in my designedclass.h file:

      Vector<DDClass, short> ddamage;
      template <int T> bool FindCondition(const DDClass& damdone) { return damdone.shipid == T; }


and in designedclass.cpp file:

      if (Type() == ship) {
            if (find_if(ddamage.begin(), ddamage.end(), FindCondition<15>))
                  g_logFile << "FOUND" << endl;
            else {
                  g_logFile << "NOT FOUND" << endl;
            }
      }

And the main DDClass.h that hanldes the vector class (that is attached)
DDClass.h

#ifndef DDCLASS_H
#define DDCLASS_H

class DDClass {
public:
    int shipid;
    long damdone;
      long cframe;
      DDClass(){}
      DDClass(int sid, long dd, long f)
            : shipid(sid), damdone(dd), cframe(f){}
      void print()const{
            cout << shipid << ", " << damdone << " on frame: " << cframe << "\n";
      }
};

#endif

'15' is the shipid I want it to find, as a test. Mainly I think this is becuase of my custom vector class, but I am not sure how I can solve it/don't know what it wants me to exactly call. Does anyone have any clues? Mainly I want to search, and if not found, add it.

Thanks!
#include <vector>
#include <ostream>
using namespace std;

template<class T, class I> class Vector {
private:      
	std::vector<T> vec;
	std::ostream* err;
public:
	  Vector(void) {
            err = &g_logFile;
      }

      Vector(I i, ostream* o =&g_logFile) 
                     : vec(i, T()), err(o)
                {
      }

      ~Vector(){
            vec.clear();
      }

      int initializeWith(I i, ostream* o =&g_logFile) {
            vec.clear();
            vec.resize(i, T());
            err = o;
            return i == vec.size()? 0 : -1;
      }

      void _initialize() {
            vec.clear();
            err = &g_logFile;
      }

      void initialize() {
            vec.clear();
            err = &g_logFile;
      }

      void destroy(){
            vec.clear();
			vec.swap( vec );
	  }

	  Vector<T,I>& operator=(const Vector<T,I>& a) {
            if (this != &a) {
                  vec = a.vec;
                  err = a.err;
            }
            return *this;
      }

	void extendBy(I i) 
	{
		vec.resize(vec.size()+i, T()); //No return with resize.
	}

	void add(T& t) {
		extendBy(1);
		vec[vec.size()-1] = t;
	}

	T* begin() {
		return vec.begin();
	}

	T* end() {
		return vec.end();
	}

	inline I size() const{
		return vec.size();
	}

etc..

Try changing this...

 if (find_if(ddamage.begin(), ddamage.end(), FindCondition<15>))


to this...

 if (find_if(ddamage.begin(), ddamage.end(), &DesignedClass::FindCondition<15>))

BTW: unless DesignedClass::FindCondition is static member you can't use it as a predicate for find_if

Something else, having a using namespace in a header is a problem waiting to happen. Every translation unit that includes that header will be polluted with namespace you use. You should avoid doing this.


The types your begin and end return are wrong, they should be iterators and not pointers.

Honestly, I would avoid having this vector adaptor class... it's just a layer of abstraction that is likely to become a maintenance overhead.

Problem is unfort the game used to use a array.h class, which was a easy swap  to vector.h without messing with alot right now. There is 'alot' of coding to change, even though it would be best, mainly there hasn't been issues (crashes/etc) using it. I actually just added the begin/end recently, but I misjudged it by mistake, and thanks for pointing that out!

Though I'd like to eventually fix it properly, but this is one of those things I don't like to play with just yet because I haven't played with them before.

And thank you for the header tip. I'm going to go check it out now and I'll let you know.

If you need to maintain pointer semantics you could do this...
       T* begin() {
                return &vec[0];
        }

        T* end() {
                return &vec[vec.size()];
        }

Removing it from the header and the begin/end fix seemed to work well. Tested and working, thanks!
