Problems with DSFML2 [help!]
« on: September 30, 2012, 03:17:25 pm »
module main;

import std.stdio;
import derelict.sfml2.system;
import derelict.sfml2.window;
import derelict.sfml2.graphics;
import derelict.sfml2.audio;

void main(string[] args)
{
        DerelictSFML2Window.load();
    DerelictSFML2System.load();
        DerelictSFML2Graphics.load();
    DerelictSFML2Audio.load();
       
        sfRenderWindow window;
}

This is my code. I get this error when compiling:

Exit code 1

How can I fix that?

The reason you get a bunch of things telling you it doesn't know the size is because Derelict only users a forward declaration for sfWindow and sfRenderWindow. It never actually defines it, so D doesn't know how much memory to reserve for the object. This is ok because you don't actually need to know.

If you instead use a pointer, you will be fine:

sfRenderWindow* window

All of the C functions with windows and render windows as parameters take a pointer to the window, not a reference to the object. Likewise, the functions that create windows return a pointer to a window object.
DSFML - SFML for the D Programming Language.
