Compiler Warning (level 4) C4266

Error Message

'function' : no override available for virtual member function from base 'type'; function is hidden

A derived class did not override all overloads of a virtual function.

This warning is off by default. See Compiler Warnings That Are Off by Default for more information.

The following sample generates C4266:

// C4266.cpp
// compile with: /W4 /c
#pragma warning (default : 4266)
class Engine {
public:
   virtual void OnException(int&,int);
   virtual void OnException(int&,int&,int);
};

class LocalBinding : private Engine {
   virtual void OnException(int&,int);
};   // C4266

Possible resolution:

// C4266b.cpp
// compile with: /W4 /c
#pragma warning (default : 4266)
class Engine {
public:
   virtual void OnException(int&,int);
   virtual void OnException(int&,int&,int);
};

class LocalBinding : private Engine {
   virtual void OnException(int&,int);
   virtual void OnException(int&, int&, int);
};
