Compiler Error C2385

Error Message

ambiguous access of 'member'

The member can derive from more than one object (it is inherited from more than one object). To resolve this error,

  • Make the member unambiguous by providing a cast.

  • Rename the ambiguous members in the base classes.

Example

The following sample generates C2385.

// C2385.cpp
// C2385 expected
#include <stdio.h>

struct A 
{
    void x(int i) 
    {
        printf_s("\nIn A::x");
    }
};

struct B 
{
    void x(char c) 
    {
        printf_s("\nIn B::x");
    }
};

// Delete the following line to resolve.
struct C : A, B {}

// Uncomment the following 4 lines to resolve.
// struct C : A, B 
// {
//     using B::x;
//     using A::x;
// };

int main() 
{
    C aC;
    aC.x(100);
    aC.x('c');
}

struct C : A, B 
{
    using B::x;
    using A::x;
};
