Expected constructor, destructor, or type conversion before ‘(’ token Error

  • I am developing an app which can be extended through the plugins. I created a small plugin which return an QAction object and it is added to menu. Ok , so the problems is that i get this error

    /home/parallels/Documents/GUI-build-desktop/../GUI/actioninterface.h:15: error: expected constructor, destructor, or type conversion before ‘(’ token


    #include <QAction>

    class ActionInteface {

    virtual ~ActionInteface() {}
    virtual QAction newAction () = 0;


    QT_DECLARE_INTERFACE(ActionInterface,"com.stefan.Plugin.ActionInterface/1.0"); // line 15


    Seems this cause another issue

    /home/parallels/Documents/GUI-build-desktop/../GUI/MainWindow.h:56: error: ‘ActionInterface’ does not name a type

    @#ifndef MAINWINDOW_H
    #define MAINWINDOW_H

    #include <QMainWindow>
    #include <QAction>
    #include <QLabel>
    #include <QMenu>
    #include "actioninterface.h" // interface header

    class MainWindow : public QMainWindow {
    //Macros necesar pentru declararea propriilor(clasei) SIGNALS si SLOTS

    // many declarations

    ActionInterface *newAction; // here a get second error 


    Actually it's about C++ but anyway , what i am missing at this point ?


    not needed "*"

  • Two typos:

    • it is Q_DECLARE_INTERFACE (not QT_)
    • your class is named ActionInteface - an r is missing in Interface
