Generalhow to make MIDL not mangle enum names Pin
Lim Bio Liong8-Aug-05 3:48
Lim Bio Liong8-Aug-05 3:48 
The following information is gotten from mariabl's blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/mariabl/archive/2005/07/21/441664.aspx[^]) :

At various times I've been annoyed with the way MIDL will mangle enum names. For example, if you have this in an IDL file:

typedef enum
{
value1,
value2
} MyEnum;

...if you run MIDL on it, in your .h file you'll get something like:

typedef
enum __MIDL___MIDL_itf_test_0000_0001
{
value1 = 0,
value2 = value1 + 1
} MyEnum;

The part that bugs me is the part in red. (I've run across various inconveniences with it when using .NET interop and even in C++.)

All you have to do is specify that tag (name) yourself!

So if I instead put in my IDL file:

typedef enum MyEnum
{
value1,
value2
} MyEnum;

I get in my .h file:

typedef
enum MyEnum
{
value1 = 0,
value2 = value1 + 1
}
MyEnum;

It seems that in some cases (going through the process of TLBs, .NET interop, etc.) the tag is used and sometimes the typedef name is used, and sometimes you get messed up if you have different tags because you've imported the same IDL file in two different places. So if you just use the same name for both you won't have weird problems later.

I guess everyone except me already knew this, but I just thought I'd pass it on in case someone didn't!
