    This question regards to user defined macro in DLL file compilation.

    Assuming I have the following codes in a DLL file:

    Code: Select all

    #ifndef USERMACRO_DECL
    	# define USERMACRO_DECL
    #endif
    When I build the DLL file, I have the following message:

    Code: Select all

    warning: "USERMACRO_DECL" redefined [enabled by default]
    This is fine for most needs, I am just wondering where in UEStudio I can turn this off, as sometimes we may choose to not define the macro for different build requirements.

    Thanks again.

      First of all, a macro already defined should not be redefined. If this must be done, then the code should be:

      Code: Select all

      #ifdef USERMACRO_DECL
      #undef USERMACRO_DECL
      #define USERMACRO_DECL whatever
      #endif
      See also Undefining and Redefining Macros in GCC online documentation. There are always one or more pretty methods to avoid a warning. It would be also possible to use a diagnostic pragma to avoid a specific warning in a specific file. I don't recommend to disable any warning. I suggest the opposite, enable all warnings supported by a compiler, especially for new projects, i.e use -Wall -Wextra for GCC/MinGW.

      The GCC page about Warning Options lists all basic options related to warnings and contains the links to the other warning options.

      I can see in the configuration files for MinGW compiler that some of those options were made customizable via the Build - Set Compiler Options dialog. And there is an additional Warnings = in group COMPILER OPTIONS to add additional warning options not explicitly listed in group C/C++ Warning Options. GCC respectively its Windows port MinGW usually outputs on a warning also the option which can be used to suppress this warning. Add this option on Warnings = in compiler options dialog. I suppose the option for this warning is -Wno-macro-redefined, but I have not studied GCC documentation to verify my assumption.
