For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode HTML tags when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Ignore HTML tags in this message" check box is unchecked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question in one forum from another, unrelated forum (such as the lounge). It will be deleted.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
I am trying to learn factory design pattern in c++, writing a program with separate header files and their class implementations in .cpp files. But i am facing problem. I was trying the ShapeFactory from where we implement Circle and Rectangle.
invalid new-expression of abstract class type 'Circle'
invalid new-expression of abstract class type 'Rectangle'
But i am getting these errors and also few other errors. Can someone please help on this.
Why would the calling function have anything to say?

With very high probability the calling code is wrong (possibly making incorrect assumptions on the called function, it passes the wrong type). Maybe a previous implementation of the library had relaxed checks on calling code correctness.

Your compiler should have an option to send the output of the preprocessor into a file. Using Visual C/C++, this option is /P, and the output file has an extension of .i .
Run your code through this, and look for cmath.h in the .i file. Then look for the definition of the round() function. You will see what the compiler thinks the round() function is, and your problem should then be obvious.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

If your code looks exactly like posted, compiler will slap you with an error on bData2 line because you don't have a default constructor. You can:
1. Modify the constructor to default to an empty string: BillingDates(std::string InputFile = std::string()) and handle the case when InputFile is the empty string.
2. Create an additional default constructor: BillingDates()
If you need to move data from bData to bData2 you might need a copy constructor: BillingDate (const BillingDate& other).
