    "no matching function for call to * '*'&" (yes, its a pointer problem...i think)

    Well, i tried googling, searching forums, FAQS, etc and unfortunately this time my results weren't very helpful

    yea, its a noob problem and im sure it has been answered many times, sorry about that.

    The errors...
    Code:

    Class Definition -
    Code:
    class Menu {
        public:
            void show();
            void hide();
            void draw();
            bool isVisible();
    
            void select(int num);
    
            void setPosition(irr::core::position2di pos);
            irr::core::position2di getPosition();
            Menu(irr::video::ITexture* textureA, irr::video::ITexture* textureB, int items, CGameManager* myManager);
        private:
            ~Menu();
    
            void configure();
            int totalItems;
    
            irr::core::rect <s32> itemSrcPos[3];
            irr::core::position2d<irr::s32> itemDrawPos[3];
            bool state[3];

            irr::video::ITexture* menu;
            irr::video::ITexture* menuHl;
    
            void create();
            CGameManager* pManager;
    
            bool visible;
    
    };
    Constructor -
    Code:
    Menu::Menu(irr::video::ITexture* textureA, irr::video::ITexture* textureB, int items, CGameManager* myManager) {
        pManager = myManager;
        totalItems = items;
    
        menu = textureA;
        menuHl = textureB;
    
        for(int x = 0; x < totalItems-1; x++) {
            if (x != 0 ) {
                itemSrcPos[x] = irr::core::rect<irr::s32>(0, (x-1)*85 ,  255,  x*85);
                itemDrawPos[x] = irr::core::position2d<irr::s32>(380, 380 + (x*50));
            }
            else {
                itemSrcPos[x] = irr::core::rect<irr::s32>( 0, 0, 255, 85 );
                itemDrawPos[x] = irr::core::position2d<irr::s32>( 380, 380);
            }
        }
    }
    Draw() function -
    Code:
    void Menu::draw() {
        if(visible) {
            for(int x = 0; x < totalItems-1; x++) {
                // If selected...
                if(state[x] == true) {
                    pManager->getDriver()->draw2DImage(menuHl,
                        itemDrawPos[x],
                        itemSrcPos[x],
                        true
                    );
                }
                else {
                    pManager->getDriver()->draw2DImage(menu,
                        itemDrawPos[x],
                        itemSrcPos[x],
                        true
                    );
                }
            }
        }
    }
    I thought i finally got the hang of pointers but it looks like im still making a mistake somewhere, probably a missing & or something :-\

    If you want to flame me/rant about peoples inability to use google and/or the "search button" then feel free, but post a link when your done

    If you need any other info, just post. Thanks in advance for the help

    Edit: sorry just noticed that the draw2Dimage function takes an SColor as an argument as well, unfortunately that doesnt fix my problem.

    You give four arguments to a six argument function. You found one to get up to five; you're still missing one.
