    Hi Folks,

    in my object plugin I'm now going through the motions of trying to save some of the variables etc used in the object's class. I use the Write() function to do the following:

    //Just Fyi: there's a struct outside the class with a Vector in it, hence the VecStruct.MyVector[].   
        virtual Bool Write(GeListNode *node, HyperFile *hf)   
            return TRUE;   
    // and in my read I use:   
        virtual Bool Read(GeListNode *node, HyperFile *hf, LONG Level)   
            return TRUE;   

    But when I try to compile the above it gives me the following compile error:

    "error C2664: 'HyperFile::ReadVector' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'double *' to 'Vector *'"

    Why am I unable to use the ReadVector() when using the WriteVector() to save it initially?

    What is MyVector?  If it is a Real[3] then you are doing it incorrectly.  Make it a literal Vector member of the class. Or, at the least, enclose VecStruct.MyVector[1] in parentheses:

    Eh. You're right. I should have looked at my Struct a little closer. I thought it was a Vector but it isn't, it's a vector of Reals.

    Thanks Rob.
