Here's my code, please help !

#include "rect.h"

int ApiMain()
{

SimpleWindow W;
W.Open();
RectangleShape S(W, 4.0, 2.0, "Red", 4, 4);
S.Draw();
Sleep(5000); // pause for 5 seconds
W.Close();
return 0;

When i use the Ezwindows for
sad smiley
#include "ezwin.h"

int ApiMain()
{

SimpleWindow W;
W.Open();

return 0;

I get this message:

ezwin.h: No such file or directory

[Warning] In function `int ApiMain()':

`SimpleWindow' undeclared (first use this function)

(Each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function

I called the lecturer she advise me to uninstall and check using find and delete all Dev.cpp I did but still get the same thing. I cannot do Question 1 and 2 because of this. I checked all trouble shoots but it seem not to work.

Anyone with an idea of what to do?

Did you install the ezwin library?
You can find it on Disk2006, under downloads if you haven't received the disk.

ok what you have to do is put your disk you recived with the course
1. Go to the install file and find and click on ezwin file
2. Once you have done that click on the compressed file ezwin that should download the files you need

3. Once these files are loaded onto your comp open up your development environment DEV C++

4.Select Tools on the menu bar
5.Then select Compiler options
6.Once you have done that click the directories button
7.Now click the Libraries button then in the input bar write C:\unisa\examples\ezwin\lib this must be identical to what i have written
8.Then click on C Includes button and write C:\unisa\examples\ezwin\include

NOW YOU ARE SET TO GO

remember when you write these programs your must start a new project of the Ez Win Application type

what you have just done is tell the compiler where to find these new files

if this dosent work you have installed the new files in the wrong location delete the files and reinstall put the new files into a unisa folder

Thanx Brendon, I'll try tonight. I'll let you know tommorrow what happened. But i tried to unzip the file and copy the path as you gave me, what i did not do was step 8

Yo yo,

What you need to do is to add the ezwinvc50.lib value to the object/library modules edit box in Project->Settings->Link Tab

If the project settings isnt enabled just try compile your source file, it will moan about not having created a workspace, just create it then.

also make sure as mentioned above to include
the path of the ezwin library in Tools->Options->Directories Tab

I had to add c:\program files\c++programdesign\ezwin\include

Hope this helps, otherwise gimme a shout.

Ciao

Timo

If you are getting errors like "ezwin.h not found" the first thing you should check is that your compiler directories are set up correctly. If you installed MingGW and DevC++ only, then you are not finished yet, you still need to set up DevC++ so that it knows where to find the EzWin files.

You should set up the directories for the include files and for the library files. I don't use DevC++ myself so check the tut letters for help on how to do this.
