Casting error in C++


Can someone help me with this error ? I'm C++ newbie. And it seems the error occurs right in a bunch of macros. What can I do to solve it ? Or how can I track it down to the source ?

I don't really understand the error. Does it mean the compiler tried to convert the method void ReadCPUparameter() to a LRESULT funcName(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam) function header ?


// error C2440: 'static_cast' : cannot convert from // 'void (__thiscall CStartup::* )(void)' to // 'LRESULT (__thiscall CWnd::* )(WPARAM,LPARAM)'. // // ON_MESSAGE(WM_UPLOAD_CPU_PARAMETER,ReadCPUparameter) // error here <hr />

<em>(I didn't write this. I need to recompile an old project from Win2000 on a Win7 machine. Old VS6.0 project -> VS2010 Prof.)</em>


// class CStartup : public CDialog {}; #include "stdafx.h" #include "MU.h" #include "Startup.h" #ifdef _DEBUG #define new DEBUG_NEW #undef THIS_FILE static char THIS_FILE[] = __FILE__; #endif CStartup::CStartup(CWnd* pParent /*=NULL*/) : CDialog(CStartup::IDD, pParent) { p_p = &cpu_par; } void CStartup::DoDataExchange(CDataExchange* pDX) { CDialog::DoDataExchange(pDX); } BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(CStartup, CDialog) ON_WM_SHOWWINDOW() ON_MESSAGE(WM_UPLOAD_CPU_PARAMETER,ReadCPUparameter) // error here END_MESSAGE_MAP() const int nLanguageIds_Language[] = { // ... }; #define MAX_READINGS 200 BOOL CStartup::OnInitDialog() { // ... } void CStartup::OnOK() { CDialog::OnOK(); } int CStartup::Check_OnRead() { // ... } void CStartup::ReadCPUparameter() { // ... } void CStartup::OnShowWindow(BOOL bShow, UINT nStatus) { CDialog::OnShowWindow(bShow, nStatus); PostMessage( WM_UPLOAD_CPU_PARAMETER ); }


the code behind the ON_MESSAGE macro expected ReadCPUparameterto have the following signature: 'LRESULT (__thiscall CWnd::* )(WPARAM,LPARAM)'. since the actual signature differs it complain about type incompatibility of the two function pointers. Its like passing a struct Oranges* to a function that expects a struct Apples*.

I guess CDialog inherits from CWND, so all you have to do to change your function signature to

LRESULT Startup::ReadCPUparameter(WPARAM wparam, LPARAM lparam);
