    What does this error mean?

    While changing one boost signal from single parameter to taking two parameters, I got this error, I checked my code, since I do not understand the error at all. For me the code seemed okay, now I am unsure what does this error want to say. To make it worse, the error points in boost source, rather than in my source.
    Code:
    C:\dev\mix\Boost\Boost\include\boost-1_34_1\boost\bind.hpp(66) : error C2825: 'F
    ::result_type': cannot form a qualified name
            C:\dev\mix\Boost\Boost\include\boost-1_34_1\boost\bind\bind_template.hpp
    (15) : see reference to class template instantiation 'boost::_bi::result_traits<
    R,F>' being compiled
            with
            [
                R=boost::_bi::unspecified,
                F=void (__thiscall QtProfileBar::* )(std::string)
            ]
            wengophone\src\presentation\qt\profilebar\QtProfileBar.cpp(67) : see reference to class template instantiation 'boost::_bi::bind_t<R,F,L>' being compiled
            with
            [
                R=boost::_bi::unspecified,
                F=void (__thiscall QtProfileBar::* )(std::string),
                L=boost::_bi::list3<boost::_bi::list_av_3<QtProfileBar *,boost::arg<
    1>,boost::arg<2>>::B1,boost::_bi::list_av_3<QtProfileBar *,boost::arg<1>,boost::

            ]

    Well, how about the source which invokes the error?

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    I would paste the source also, but, that is not going to make it any simpler, I guess. The source is also a little customized, so needs more explanation. Besides, I think some of the forum members, who are pretty used to boost, can have a quick look at the error message and may give me some hint, which is more readable than the above error.

    Templates are tricky creatures with tricky errors. It's usually not possible to look and say what's wrong.
    Besides, even if they do know what's wrong, how would you know how to correct it?
    And it is usually easier to figure out the error by looking at the source. Maybe just the line that causes the error.
