Redirecting CLI output in a c++ QT app.

HI Guys,
I'm trying to redirect all stdout to a text box in my QT 4 app.  I found the following code in a forum and other people said it worked.  My problem is that I'm new to c++ and cant figure out the following compiler error message.  Any input would be appriciated.

 error: ‘myRedirector’ was not declared in this scope
freeems_loader.cpp:29: error: no matching function for call to ‘StdRedirector<char, std::char_traits<char> >::StdRedirector(std::ostream&, <unresolved overloaded function type>, QTextBrowser*&)’

Well, the declaration is missing and the call to 'new' also seems to be missing its template argument - did you mean the following?
void FreeEMS_Loader::redirectCLI()
{
	StdRedirector`* myRedirector = new StdRedirector <char>(std::cout,   outCallBack, ui.textOutput);

	std::cout <<"Hello! We are ready" << endl;
}

Ooops, typo, that should be
void FreeEMS_Loader::redirectCLI()
{
	StdRedirector* myRedirector = new StdRedirector <char>(std::cout,   outCallBack, ui.textOutput);

	std::cout <<"Hello! We are ready" << endl;
}

Now I get a different error, thanks for the fast response.

 missing template arguments before ‘*’ token
freeems_loader.cpp:29: error: ‘myRedirector’ was not declared in this scope
freeems_loader.cpp:29: error: no matching function for call to ‘StdRedirector<char, std::char_traits<char> >::StdRedirector(std::ostream&, <unresolved overloaded function type>, QTextBrowser*&)’

Argh, my bad, not a good idea to mention the template argument and then omitting it again - try
void FreeEMS_Loader::redirectCLI()
{
	StdRedirector<char>* myRedirector = new StdRedirector <char>(std::cout,   outCallBack, ui.textOutput);

	std::cout <<"Hello! We are ready" << endl;
}

Getting closer, I apologize for my ignorance.

How is 'outCallBack' declared?

sean-keysAuthor Commented:

void FreeEMS_Loader::outCallBack( const char* ptr, std::streamsize count, void* pTextBox )
{
  (void) count;
  QTextBrowser* p = static_cast< QTextBrowser* >( pTextBox );
  p->append( ptr );
}

jkrCommented:
Well, that seems to be the problem, you can't use a member function here - can you make that a static member and make the call look like
void FreeEMS_Loader::redirectCLI()
{
	StdRedirector<char>* myRedirector = new StdRedirector <char>(std::cout,   (StdRedirector<char>::pfncb) outCallBack, ui.textOutput);

	std::cout <<"Hello! We are ready" << endl;
}
