Summary0001637: 'PlaySoundA' is not a member of 'Noesis::GUI'
DescriptionHi guys, I've just decided to test out upgrading from 2.2.1 -> 2.2.6.

I've just hit a compile error caused by the WinAPI doing some #define to rename "PlaySound" to either "PlaySoundA" or "PlaySoundW".

The file which fails to compile is "IntegrationAPI.cpp". The issue is caused by the order of includes:

1. IntegrationAPI.cpp first includes IntegrationAPI.h. This declares a function called "PlaySound" in the GUI namespace.
2. It then includes NsDrawing/VGL.h which includes NsCore/SpinMutex.h which includes <windows.h>. This eventually includes "PlaySoundAPI.h" in the windows api which redefined PlaySound to either PlaySoundA / PlaySoundW depending on unicode settings.
3. This then causes a compile error because the definition does not match the name of the declaration.

Error is as follows (I've cut out all the other non-important include paths)

I can fix locally by renaming "PlaySound" to "NsPlaySound" so it doesn't match the #define.

Ugh, not sure why we are not having that error here and nobody complained before but I think we should rename PlaySound to something different. Unicode macros in window are a nightmare.

Yup, I fully agree :) In fact, I'd go as far to say that the entire WinAPI is a nightmare.

Others may not have an issue because I'm not building Noesis externally using the generated solution. We use premake and directly integrate the CPP / H files from Noesis into our game's solution, so Noesis is built as part of our solution / generated project as opposed to Noesis solution/project generated via the Python script. This means that we may have different build settings which may include different windows unicode settings, or API settings etc.

I love that idea of integrating CPP / H directly into your solution. And we want to support this way in the future (like for example providing a single .cpp (or just a few) with all Noesis inside). Any feedback to make your life easier about this is welcome. Thanks!

I fixed this and also added WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN in all places we are including windows.h
