Trying to use simple function in Windows Form application

Hello experts.

Created simple windows form application in VC++ 2008.

Please have a look at the code below:

private: System::Void listBox1_Click(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e)
                   {
                         String^ s;

                         if ( listBox1->SelectedIndex != -1 )
                              s = listBox1->SelectedItems[0]->ToString();

                         aaa(1);
   
                         
                         

                   }
      };


As you can see, I try to call "aaa(1)".


My "Headers.h":

#include "stdafx.h"

int aaa(int a);



My "Functions.cpp":

#include "stdafx.h"

int aaa(int a)
{
      return -1;
      
}




But get two errors:

OpenCV tester.obj : error LNK2028: unresolved token (0A00000A) "int __clrcall OpenCVtester::aaa(int)" (?aaa@OpenCVtester@@$$FYMHH@Z) referenced in function "private: void __clrcall OpenCVtester::Form1::listBox1_Click(class System::Object ^,class System::EventArgs ^)" (?listBox1_Click@Form1@OpenCVtester@@$$FA$AAMXP$AAVObject@System@@P$AAVEventArgs@4@@Z)
OpenCV tester.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "int __clrcall OpenCVtester::aaa(int)" (?aaa@OpenCVtester@@$$FYMHH@Z) referenced in function "private: void __clrcall OpenCVtester::Form1::listBox1_Click(class System::Object ^,class System::EventArgs ^)" (?listBox1_Click@Form1@OpenCVtester@@$$FA$AAMXP$AAVObject@System@@P$AAVEventArgs@4@@Z)

Why is that?



Thank you

And of course I added:

#include "Headers.h"

Did you try:
::aaa(1);  // calling function with global scope

I think your aaa() is written inside a class???

If so, then Use
int ClassName::aaa(int a) {
  // Write your code ...
  return -1;
}

Subrat, as mentioned in my first post:

My "Functions.cpp":

#include "stdafx.h"

int aaa(int a)
{
      return -1;
     
}

Include headers.h in Functions.cpp and wherever you are using aaa() there, include "Headers.h"
