    Question NEWBIE: Class Problem

    I can't seem to get this working. It gives me 2 syntax errors (under visual C++ 6) saying that im missing ';' on line 43. Can someone please tell me what ive done wrong?
    TIA
    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    
    class Network
    {
    public:
    	// Handles the Server
    	void MT_StartServer(int *Port);
    	void MT_EndServer(int *Port);
    
    	// Handles the Client
    	void MT_ConnectToServer(int *Port);
    	void MT_DisconnecFromServer(int *Port);
    
    	// Handles Input/Output
    	void MT_SendMessage(char *Message);
    	void MT_ReceiveMessage(char *Message);
    
    private:
    	// Private Ints
    	int Port;		// The Port as of which they'll be using
    
    	// Private Chars
    	char Message[50];// The message they'll be sending
    };
    
    void Network::MT_StartServer(int *Port)
    {
    	cout << Port;
    }
    
    int main()
    {
    	Network.MT_StartServer(1299); // This is line 43
    	return 0;
    }

    Well for a start, your MT_StartServer() expects a pointer to an int, and gets an int
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Next off, you don't actually have an instance of your class any place, and since that isn't a static member function, you can't just call that function by itself.

    Quzah.
    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    your member functions arn't static.
    You can't call non static methods from the class itself, you need to instantiate a class.
    Network nwVariable;
    or
    Network *nwVariable = new Network();

    then

    nwVariable.MT_StartServer(apointerToInt);
    or
    nwVariable->MT_StartServer(apointerToInt);
    c++->visualc++->directx->opengl->c++;
    (it should be realized my posts are all in a light hearted manner. And should not be taken offense to.)

    >your member functions arn't static.
    It still wouldn't work even if they were, unless the OP is using some bastardization of C with Classes and C++. To access a static member function, you use the scope resolution operator, not the member operator:
    Code:
    Network::MT_StartServer(1299);
    My best code is written with the delete key.
