Pass RenderWindow to function
« on: January 12, 2014, 10:55:02 pm »
Lets say i have main function and there i have declared a RenderWindow window.

In my player class i have Draw function to draw everything relevant to player. How can i pass window from my main function  to my draw function in player class so i can draw player stuff, and then just call player.draw( render window) in main game loop.

If I understand what you're saying, why wouldn't you just use window.draw(player)? It calls the draw() method from your Player class.

You can find more here under "Creating a SFML-like Entity".

In general, if you have to pass something to a function, you should use a reference. For standard types you can pass it by value.

The best Version is probally, as you already have done it, make your Player drawable. If you want to use the RenderWindow in a function:
void foo(sf::RenderWindow &window)
{
    //...
}
