Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

I interpret your question as:

In C++ code, you have two base classes: BaseClassA and BaseClassB.

DerivedClassC is derived from BaseClassA.

You want DerivedClassC to be a child of BaseClassB instead.

If that is a correct interpretation then in the existing DerivedClass.h header will be a line:

Class DerivedClassC : BaseClassA

If you change the reference from BaseClassA to BaseClassB then you will have successfully re-parented the DerivedClassC.

You will then have to ensure that any existing code you have written elsewhere that uses BaseClassA functionality when dealing with instances of DerivedClassC are updated if that identical functionality and call signature does not exist in BaseClassB.

Also any variable declarations, template calls ("") and casts ("= (BaseClassA)") etc. would need to be updated to refer to BaseClassB.

Could be a messy task if you are editing a big project.
