Calling a Class Library function without explicitly using the class name

Suppose we have a namespace "MyFavoriteLibrary" and within that there is a class called "MyLib and within MyLib is a function called "MyFunct."

I believe that I can call that function by MyFavoriteLibrary::MyLib::MyFunct()

I believe that I can also use

using namespace MyFavoriteLibrary;

MyLib::MyFunct();

Is there a way to set-up the library or application to simply call

MyFunct();

Hi rickhill11,

IMO the only possibility is to declare a macro like i.e.:

  #define MyFunct MyFavoriteLibrary::MyLib::MyFunct

I hope you noticed this can only work for static member functions.

Hope this helps,

best regards,
