C++ reference is ambiguous with code::blocks

I don't know what means ambiguous , here's the code :

#if defined(UNICODE) && !defined(_UNICODE)
    #define _UNICODE
#elif defined(_UNICODE) && !defined(UNICODE)
    #define UNICODE
#endif

#include <tchar.h>
#include <windows.h>

        return 0;

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Change the line

    Polygon poly;                // make a shape (a polygon)

Open in new window


to read

    Graph_lib::Polygon poly;                // make a shape (a polygon)

Open in new window


Otherwise the compiler will not know if you are referring to 'Polygon()' (the Windows API function, see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd162814(v=vs.85).aspx) or the 'Polygon' in your 'Graph_lib'.

Which file or directory is it referring to? Is that referring to building or running your application?

Ok I just find what's wrong I have changed a library to the include folder. Now my compiler tell me :

 #error This file requires compiler and library support for the \
ISO C++ 2011 standard. This support is currently experimental, and must be \
enabled with the -std=c++11 or -std=gnu++11 compiler options.
#endif

I can ask a new question if you want more points.

Thank you for your time... I have some difficulties to integrate what I read into code::blocks

You should add either '-std=c++11' or '-std=gnu++11' to your project's settings, check http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Per-project_variables
