Trouble including Graphics.hpp to my header file
« on: December 08, 2023, 12:23:31 pm »
I have big trouble including SFML/Graphics.hpp to my header file inside include/ folder.
It says that:
#include errors detected based on information provided by the configurationProvider setting. Squiggles are disabled for this translation unit.
cannot open source file "SFML/Graphics.hpp"

I am working on M1 Macbook with macOS Sonoma 14.0.
I have installed sfml via brew.

I also attach my project structure, sfml version I'm working with and compilation script.

Including path in Microsoft C/C++ Extension didn't help as well.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you for your answer in advance

It's probably because you're not including asdf.h anywhere in the main.cpp or Ball.h file, as such it's not detected as being part of the translation unit (i.e. the compiled C++ source file (main.cpp)).

I highly recommend to install the CMake extension in VS Code and use CMake instead of a makefile.
There's even a great SFML CMake template here: https://github.com/SFML/cmake-sfml-project
