    C2061 error in header file

    In the code (.h file)below, I am creating a class clsA with a constructor.
    Then, I am declaring another class clsB, which always will have 2 instances of clsA.
    I am getting the C2061 error

    c:\vcppnet\new\new\stdafx.h(19) : error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'TYPE1'
    c:\vcppnet\new\new\stdafx.h(20) : error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'TYPE1'

    Can I get some help in resolving this please?

    Code:
    typedef enum {TYPE1, TYPE2} enumType;
    class clsA{
    	public:
    		int a;
    		clsA(enumType n_type){a=n_type;};
    };
    
    class clsB{
    public:
    	clsA A1(TYPE1);
    	clsA A2(TYPE2);
    };

    unless you are going to have A1 and A2 as static members, you must initialise them in the clsB constructor.

    either
    Code:
    typedef enum {TYPE1, TYPE2} enumType;
    
    class clsA{
    	public:
    		int a;
    		clsA(enumType n_type){a=n_type;};
    };
    
    class clsB{
    public:
        clsA A1;
        clsA A2;
        clsB() : A1(TYPE1), A2(TYPE2) {}
    };
    or...
    Code:
    typedef enum {TYPE1, TYPE2} enumType;
    
    class clsA{
    	public:
    		int a;
    		clsA(enumType n_type){a=n_type;};
    };
    
    class clsB{
    public:
        static clsA A1;
        static clsA A2;
    };
    
    clsA clsB::A1(TYPE1);
    clsA clsB::A2(TYPE2);
