Help would be appreciated.


The linker couldn't find the Log function declared in class CMainFrame.

You did this declaration in MainFrm.h:
void Log(int arg1, char const * arg2, int arg3, char const * arg4);

But you didn't write the implementation for this function anywhere. Check your MainFrm.cpp file and make sure you didn't forget or maybe commented it:
//this function implementation doesn't exist.
//did you comment it?
void CMainFrame::Log(int arg1, char const * arg2, int arg3, char const * arg4)

By the way, I suppose you want to declare you char pointers parameters as const char* and not char const*...

I guess if it was a lib you wouldn't have a function declaration in your own code, my 5... :)

Thank you Albert. It is often tricky to solve linker issues, especially for beginners. I think OP will have some more problems: have a look to his last comment.

Just noticed he has this m_pParent->Log but the Log prototype doesn't look like part of a class (at least he didn't show it as included in a class)

Ok i figured out that the header file MainFrm.h is coming from ..\rhub\mainfrm.h.
& in that rhub directory too it has Mainfrm.cpp which has Log function.

Now what do i need to do to call the function from that .cpp?
Should i add that cpp in my project ?

Yes, you need the .cpp file. But it sounds strange. Do you mean you are using MainFrm.cpp from another project?? In that case, I predict a lot of errors coming...
Maybe you don't include the corresponding header file.

Nope: that's a linker error, not a compiler one.
