C++ Homework Help Nested classes

Hi,

Alright 10 minutes into this thing and I am already stuck. I have a class Employee that seems fine, another class Student again fine.

Now I need a class TeachingAssistant nesting the first two classes. Sounds easy:
My header for just getting started:

#ifndef TEACHINGASSISTANT_H
#define TEACHINGASSISTANT_H

#include "Employee.h"
#include "Student.h"

class TeachingAssitant
{
public:
	TeachingAssitant();
	class Employee;
	class Student;
};

#endif

Open in new window


When I go to implement TeachingAssistant it won't see it. I am including the above header file so I am not sure how to get further.

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "TeachingAssisstant.h"

using namespace std;

TeachingAssistant::TeachingAssistant() <- error

Open in new window


Thanks!

Just a typo. You called the class TeachingAssitant in the .h file (missing an 's')

Also, your include for the .h looks like it has an extra 's'

Everything else looks like it should work.

I think intellisense would have picked all of that up but I retyped it all to be sure.

"It" doesn't seem to like my constructor for TeachingAssistant. I just compiled and have a ton of errors. I will work through them and post an update. Should have tried that first. The errors are mostly in the other classess and implementations.

Sorry I got frustrated.

Thanks!

If you're not already doing this, try compiling much more often. It will save you tons of time if you try compiling every time you write a class definition or function instead of waiting until you have dozens of new lines of code.
