Latest VAX, VC2010, Win7.

class CInterface
{
public:
	virtual void Foo() = 0 ;
} ;

void f()
{
	class CImpl : public CInter[PLACE_CURSOR_HERE]face 
	{
	public:
	} ;
}


Place cursor on CInterface and "Implement Interface" is not available in VAX pop up menu.

I am seeing the same effect here. Thank you for the clear description.

case=74977

This surprised me, I was not aware you could declare a class inside a function, but thinking about it, it does make sense, since this is just another way of restricting the scope of the new class. Plus it compiles, always a good test

Do you have a lot of code that does this? Or is this only used a few times?

I use such code to create template functions that uses for example a functor class that should not be visible outside the function, thus this is a bit simplified example. So expand the real testcases with template functions and inner classes

Ah, thank you for the explanation Do you have an example or two of real usage that you would be able to post, that I can use to make more realistic test cases with? I will certainly make sure to run some more complex tests on this when I get to it, its also good to know we are testing the sort of thing you are doing as well.

Sorry, most examples are to complex and have too many dependencies to other classes and the code is confidential. But here is a example that should catch most test cases (works only at VC2010SP1+). To answer your question how often I use such constructs: not very often

class __declspec( novtable ) CIInitable
{
public:
	virtual void Init( void ) = 0 ;
} ;

template< class FUNC >
typename FUNC::result_type FooBar( FUNC func, const typename FUNC::first_argument_type p )
{
	if( true == std::is_base_of< CIInitable, FUNC >::value )
	{
		func.Init() ;
	}
	return func( p, 4711 ) ;
}

template< class P >
P Foo( const P p )
{
	struct s : public std::binary_function< P, P, P >, public virtual CIInitable
	{
		result_type operator()( first_argument_type x, second_argument_type y )
		{
			return x + y ;
		}

		virtual void Init( void )
		{
			// Do some funny stuff
		}
	} ;
	s  f ;
	return FooBar( f, p ) ;
}

int result = Foo( 42 ) ;

Code being confidential is normal, and expected. Thank you for this, that's definitely a more complex example than any I was likely to come up with!

Its taken a little bit of wrapping my head around. Just to make sure I understand correctly, you would be looking to trigger Implement Interface on the "struct s" created inside Foo() ?

Any reason for making this a struct? I know you can derive a struct from something else, but it is very rarely done in my experience.

In C++ class and struct are nearly the same, but in a struct you normaly have no ctor, members are public by default, different vtable, and so on. Some tricky template things can only be done with structs and not with classes (f.e. template typedefs, do not know why ). I used struct just to have a unexpected keyword for a "class" in this test-case and it seems, that I choosed right

I know struct and class are virtually identical in C++, this has come up before, occasionally, when people have reported bugs deriving a struct, since it has been known to confuse our parser. Its very rare to see this done though, which is why I asked

I did not know that some things can only be done with struct's though, that's interesting, and does help to explain why you used struct here, in addition to producing a challenging test case

Thank you for the example, I have added this to the bug report, so we will know to keep an eye on code like this.
