Thread: Where is Min Max in VS Pro 2005?

    Where is Min Max in VS Pro 2005?

    I am converting code to run as a DLL in C++ in VisualStudio Pro 2005 under Windows XP.

    The code starts with:

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <string.h>
    #include <math.h>
    #include <io.h>

    It has a line using the Max math function:

    start = Math::Max(0, start - (cnt * 0.03));

    Yet this line creates two errors:
    C2027 use of undefined type ‘Math’
    C3861 ‘Max’: identifier not found

    Please can you help me with my math settings etc.

    Thank you

    In my opinion a notation like Math::Max means that you are trying to use a function from another C++ -- “managed C++” or “CLR”. Please give us details about the type of your application.

    If it is not a managed C++, then you can use the std::min and std::max function from STL, defined in <algorithm> header file. But it may not work if you also use some Windows header files which give another definition. For solution, see

    Alternatively you can use __min and __max defined in <stdio.h>.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you - problem solved

    I have just experimented with both __min and std::min and both formats have cleared my compliation errors.

    Many thanks for your quick, helpful reply.
