Error returning enum type

  • Hi,

    class myclass : public QObject
    Q_PROPERTY(E_Priority priorityFunc READ getpriorityFunc WRITE setpriorityFunc NOTIFY SIGpriorityChanged)
    enum E_Priority { High, Low, VeryHigh, VeryLow };
    explicit myclass(QObject *parent = 0);
    E_Priority getpriorityFunc()const;
    void setpriorityFunc(E_Priority prpt);

    void SIGpriorityChanged(E_Priority);

    public slots:
    E_Priority m_priority;

    myclass::myclass(QObject *parent) : QObject(parent)

    E_Priority myclass:: getpriorityFunc(){
    return m_priority;

    void myclass:: setpriorityFunc(E_Priority prpt){
    m_priority = prpt;
    emit SIGpriorityChanged(m_priority);

    There is a error : 'E_Priority' does not name type.

    E_Priority is not known in the global scope, thus when declaring a function that returns it you should scope it to the class it is declared in:

    myclass::E_Priority myclass::getpriorityFunc(){

    Btw. please surround your code with ```. It makes it a lot easier to read.

    Thank you.
    But there is Prototype miss match error

  • Moderators

    That doesn't tell much. Can you post the full error and the code that generates it?

  • @Chris-Kawa
    Code is already share in above post.

    myclass.cpp:8: error: prototype for 'myclass::E_Priority myclass::getpriorityFunc()' does not match any in class 'myclass'
    myclass::E_Priority myclass:: getpriorityFunc(){

  • Moderators

    Ok, your function is declared const in the header but non-const in the definition. Should be:

    myclass::E_Priority myclass::getpriorityFunc() const {
