    simple app with MFC

    I'm using Visual C++ 6.0 ...
    I create empty project (Win32 App) and new .cpp file:

    Code:
    #include <afxwin.h>
    
    class AppX : public CWinApp
    {
    	public:
    	BOOL InitInstance()
    	{
    		CFrameWnd *mainWinL = new CframeWnd;
    
    		mainWinL->Create (NULL, "Main Window Title");
    		mainWinL->ActivateFrame;
    
    		return true;
    	}
    }
    
    AppX MyApp;
    This gives to errors?
    error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'MyApp'
    fatal error C1004: unexpected end of file found

    Thank you!

    I think you have to put a semicolon after the end of the AppX class (after the }).

    In C++ class decl. doesnt end with semicolon ;
    It gives 102 errors

    I'm not sure where those errors are coming from, but C++ classes definitely end with a ';'.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    I'm quite sure you need a semicolon in C++. You don't need it in Java or C#, but your code looks like MFC so I'm ruling those out.

    I don't have a compiler right now, but I fixed some things that looked like syntactic mistakes so give this a shot. If it doesn't work, post the errors.

    Code:
    #include <afxwin.h>
    
    class AppX : public CWinApp
    {
    	public:
    	BOOL InitInstance()
    	{
    		CFrameWnd *mainWinL = new CFrameWnd;
    
    		mainWinL->Create (NULL, "Main Window Title");
    		mainWinL->ActivateFrame();
    		return TRUE ;
    	}
    };
    
    AppX MyApp;

    MFC is quite fine for rapid app development. Its not the best performer if you are writing something that needs optimal performance and is a speed demon. Its close though, too many people write it off as something that is useless, when in fact it is not. I use it quite frequently still, and aids in creating quick and useful applications.

    From my experience, 90% of people who trash MFC have never used it.

    Ditto. I doubt I'd be too far off in estimating that the other 10% are lazy programmers who tried it for a day and decided it was just too hard or simply wanted to climb back on the ignorance bandwagon screaming about how the API is incomparably superior.

    A little extra info, you might seriously use the code auto-generator to really get a feel for MFC, its quite a lot to tackle at once, especially in the beginning, but it certainly helped me get more familiar with MFC quickly and familiarized myself with some of the classes.

    I got a similar error to the one you have described before. If I remember correctly, you need to uncheck the use precompiled headers from the project properties. I hope this helps.
