rectSourceSprite out of scope
« on: August 09, 2020, 01:26:09 am »
SFML forum,

 I'm doing some sprite displaying in a function.
 I can do:

 but the compiler doesn't like:
 rectSourceSprite.left = 213;

 I have used all this command successfully outside of the function
 but the error message seems to indicate it's out of scope.

 I tried:
 sf::rectSourceSprite.left = 213;
 sprite.rectSourceSprite.left = 213;
 but they don't satisfy the compiler.

Any suggestions?

What is rectSourceSprite? sf::Sprite does not have this member. And SFML does not have a class called rectSourceSprite either.

Either post the whole code (or at least minimal and reproducible), or make it clearer what you are trying to achieve. Why do you not want to use setPosition?
