An object of abstract class cannot be created

hi,

when i try to compile my source code, i get this error:

"/development/demusr/osrc/hello_02/hello_02-0.0.0/libsrc/CustRegister.cxx", line 6.44: 1540-1107 (S) An object of abstract class "CustLoaderFactory" cannot be created.
"/development/demusr/include/SdkTargetFactory.h", line 44.21: 1540-1112 (I) "TargetFactory<TsfLoader>::createCondition(char *, const void *)" is a pure virtual function.

Appreciate if you can advise on this with some explaination.
Thank you in advance.

You are also trying to instantiate a class of CustLoaderFactory where it is abstract.  You need to instantiate a derived class rather than the abstract class.  If you are just using a reference to a CustLoaderFactory instance in CustRegister.cxx then you don;t need to create it, you just need to refer to an existing instance.

It's not abstract, none of the members are pure virtual.
All of life is about relationships, and EE has made a viirtual community a real community. It lifts everyone's boat

No - I guess not.

Abstract status is inherited while all interfaces or pure virtual functions from base classes are not implemented.
I dont know OjectCollector.h and SdkTargetFactory.h, so I can't guess what implementation are required, but it's inside them that you'll find the solution.

The argument type that i declared in my header file and source file is different from the OjectCollector.h and SdkTargetFactory.h. My bad for not paying enough attention to it. Thanks guys!

What aregument type do you refer? Function arguments? I explained in http:#34091062 exactly why you were getting the error. You were subclassing abstract classes so you either needed to implement the exact same functions as those that were in the base classes that were pure virtual or not sublclass abstract classes.

Can you expand on that because it doesn't explain how you fixed the issue?

Also, I don't see how the answers you've selected answer your problem.

#3 - http:#34091062 explained exactly what the error was and what steps needed to be taken to fix it.

No other post provided an reason for the error or a solution.
