myint is not getting incremented.

myform.cpp file
int myint = 0;

namespace xyz
{
  void myform::MainTimer_Tick(System::Object^ sender, System::EventArgs^ e)
  {
    myint++;
  }
}

Open in new window

There are no Classes, just methods and variables.

So what's going on here?

Why is it declared outside of the namespace?

Beats me. I inherited this code.

Interesting it compiles and runs without complaint. If I right-click on myint++ and say "Go to Definition" it goes to the definition above.

Maybe I should move that variable inside the namespace? Or declare it static?

Have you tried

::myint++;

Open in new window


?

>>Maybe I should move that variable inside the namespace?

That would definitely be an option - except if other code in other namespaces uses it as well...

That's it! [the two colons worked.]

(I also discovered there was another static int myint = 0; at the top of the method.)
