digitalmars.D.learn - How does one correct shadowing (hidden by) errors?

While attempting to build the DFL libraries, I encountered the following 
three errors:

[1] tabcontrol.d(18): Error: class dfl.tabcontrol.TabPage use of 
dfl.control.Control.opEquals(Control ctrl) hidden by TabPage is deprecated

[2] tabcontrol.d(18): Error: class dfl.tabcontrol.TabPage use of 
dfl.control.Control.opCmp(Control ctrl) hidden by TabPage is deprecated

[3] imagelist.d(22): Error: class 
dfl.imagelist.ImageList.ImageCollection use of 
dfl.imagelist.ImageList.ImageCollection.ListWrapArray!(Image,_images,_adding,_added,_blankListCallback,_removed,false,fal
e,false).insert(int 
index, Image value) hidden by ImageCollection is deprecated

Now I know I can bypass this with the -d switch but I'm more interested 
in fixing the problem than bypassing it.

Control defines the following two functions:

	override Dequ opEquals(Object o)
	{
		Control ctrl = cast(Control)o;
		if(!ctrl)
			return 0; // Not equal.
		return opEquals(ctrl);
	}

	override int opCmp(Object o)
	{
		Control ctrl = cast(Control)o;
		if(!ctrl)
			return -1;
		return opCmp(ctrl);
	}
	
Whereas TabPage defines the following:

	override Dequ opEquals(Object o)
	{
		return text == getObjectString(o);
	}

	override int opCmp(Object o)
	{
		return stringICmp(text, getObjectString(o));
	}

How does one correct this such that the latter does not hide the first?

Problem [3] on the other hand is caused by a template mixin in the 
dfl.imagelist.ImageList.ImageCollection. ImageCollection is not a 
derived class so I do not understand what is being hidden. Please 
explain. Also, a suggestion on how to correct the issue would be 
helpful. The code is as follows:

class ImageList
{
	class ImageCollection
	{
		...
		public:
		mixin ListWrapArray!(Image, _images,
			_adding, _added,
			_blankListCallback!(Image), _removed,
			false, false, false);
	}
	...
}

Thanks

It might have those issues fixed, unless this is where you've cloned
from, in which case sorry for the noise.

 It is not fixed there, it is missing a number of changes. This is one of

 override.

I think we are talking about two different things: overriding and overloading. Bye, bearophile

There is a trick based on explicit alias to avoid those errors. I'd like the idea of using this alias to be present in that error message... Bye, bearophile

Please do share. I thought the concept explicit alias simply requires me to do his: alias ListWrapArray LWA; mixin LWA!(Image, _images, _adding, _added, _blankListCallback!(Image), _removed, false, false, false); This did not work... resulted in the same error. On closer look it seems the actual problem is not the template but the definition of "insert" therein. It is being hidden by the definition of insert in ImageCollection. ImageCollection definition: void insert(int index, Image img) { if(index >= _images.length) { add(img); } else { assert(0, "Must add images to the end of the image list"); } } ListWrapArray definition: void insert(int index, TValue value) { _insert(index, value); } In the end it turns out to be the same problem as one and two. Any suggestion on how to deal with these correctly? I can resolve this particular error by renaming the function to "Insert" in ImageCollection. But even though it appeases the compiler, is that the correct solution? Is there something else that I'm not taking into consideration? How do I fix the other two since there is no way to rename opApply and opCmp that I'm aware of? Thanks

Ok, I got it. The problem is not overriding ALL the opEquals functions in the child class. I.e. you must override all overloaded functions when overriding one function.
