I have a dll(xyz.dll).
In xyz.h,I have two functions given below
typedef void DRMAPI  abc_t (int nPercentCompleted, void *const pUserData)
ErrorCode_t DRMAPI abc (const FC3Encode_t hEncodeHandle,abc_t *const fpCallBack, void *const pUserData)

I want to create application in vc++ with mfc.
My appliction header file code is
class MatchDynamicLibrary
    typedef void (DRMAPI *Mabc_t)(int nPercentCompleted, void* const pUserData);
    typedef DrmErrorCode_t (DRMAPI *Mabc)(const FC3Encode_t hEncodeHandle, abc_t *const fpCallBack, void *const pUserData); 
    void abc_t(int nPercentCompleted, void* const pUserData);
    DrmErrorCode_t abc(const FC3Encode_t hEncodeHandle, abc_t *const fpCallBack, void *const pUserData);
    Mabc_t    m_fpabc_t;
    Mabc      m_fpabc; 
vc++ code file is
void MatchDynamicLibrary::Initialize()
    using std::swap;
    PDynLib plibrary(new Drm::CXDynamicLibrary);
    #ifdef WIN32
    const char* szName="xyz.dll";

    Mabc_t fpabc_t=reinterpret_cast<Mabc_t>(plibrary->GetSymbol("abc_t"));
    Mabc fpabc=reinterpret_cast<Mabc>(plibrary->GetSymbol("abc"));
    m_fpabc_t_t = fpabc_t;
    m_fpabc = fpabc;
DrmErrorCode_t MatchDynamicLibrary::abc(const FC3Encode_t hEncodeHandle, abc_t *const fpCallBack, void *const pUserData)
    return m_fpabc(hEncodeHandle, fpCallBack, pUserData);
DrmErrorCode_t MatchDynamicLibrary::abc_t(int nPercentCompleted, void *const pUserData)
    m_fpabc_t(nPercentCompleted, pUserData);

When I run , it gives error
error C206 1: syntax error : identifier 'abc_t'
error C2065: 'fpCallBack' : undelared identifier
error C2065: 'pUserData' : undelared identifier

You do not have a definition of abc_t which is used in the first typedef. In future please show the exact line that the error message refers to.

Thanks, I owe you a (virtual) beer.

definition is in xyz.dll

Include xyz.h in your client application.
Richard MacCutchan 31-Jul-12 12:36pm
Well that is not the right place. As you can see the compiler cannot find the definition, so you need to provide it, either by including the correct header or by editing your own code.

I just have simplified your code. Apply following sample code logic to your project.

typedef void (*abc_t) (int nPercentCompleted, void *const pUserData);
void abc (const int hEncodeHandle,const abc_t fpCallBack, void *const pUserData);
