Hi there. I am having trouble remembering how to access a class from an include within one of my classes. If you look at this code, the compiler does not see that there is a type of "string". As you can see, I have the string include up above. It works fine in the main code but I want that functionality to be in a class. Any assistance is much appreciated! Thanks!

Sorry about the staggering of the code. It was nice and neatly indented when I pasted it.

#include <string>

using namespace std;

should fix it.

Thanks! It's always something stupid simple that I over-look. I tend to have the bad habit of over analyzing my code so I miss the most obvious problems. *kicking myself*

You need to take care when using the 'using' command in C++. If that code sits in a header file and will itself be included into another file, then you should not put a 'using' at the top level.

If this is the case for your code, then you can put the 'using' command within the class.

I'll put it in my class as you suggested. I had that line in my main code and when I moved the string logic to the sphere_dude class, I gave no thought to adding the line there as well, so my code stopped working. A silly little oversight. Thanks for your advice, all of you.
