"auto" does not name a type in RooFit

Dear Experts,

I am trying to do a RooFit incorporating a particular style for the output. Here’s the macro and the root file:ksks_fit_belle2_style.C (6.7 KB) forfit_mc13b_proc11_large.root (15.0 KB)

When I run the code, I receive the following error message:

Would you please help??


The myRooPolBG.cpp file is missing to be able to run your macro, and those lines:


Should be:


Thank you for your message. The code works when I replaced the line auto logo = new TLatex(); by
*TLatex logo = new TLatex(); and

and auto leg = new TLegend(0.57,0.73,0.78,0.93); by
*TLegend leg = new TLegend(0.57,0.73,0.78,0.93);

Sure, but auto should work as well… Which ROOT version? on which platform? with which compiler?

RooFit 3.60 and root ROOT 5.34/38 and compiler is g++. Yes auto works when I dont use RooFit. I was using it here:fit_mc.C (3.4 KB)

Oh, OK, ROOT 5… :wink:

My plot now looks like:Screenshot from 2020-07-09 17-22-28

as you can see I have not been able to get the correct entries in the legend and I am now using this macro ksks_fit_belle2_style.C (7.1 KB)

Can you plese help?. There are no error messages or warnings

When i run this macro I get:

ksks_fit_belle2_style.C:40:10: fatal error: 'myRooPolBG.cpp' file not found

oops!! I am sorry, here re the missing files

myRooPolBG.cpp (1.8 KB) myRooPolBG.h (929 Bytes)

Error in <TFile::TFile>: file forfit_proc11_bucket9to12_bcs.root does not exist

I had attached it in the question. Is it not working??

you attached forfit_mc13b_proc11_large.root
and it is looking for forfit_proc11_bucket9to12_bcs.root is it the same file ?

okay I’m sorry, just noticed it.
Here 's file forfit_proc11_bucket9to12_bcs.root (12.5 KB) . However, it doesn’t matter if one uses the previous file as the structure is the same.

Dear @couet, Thank you very very much, I had been struggling with it for hours. :smiley: :smiley:

Let me explain what I did. The objects you are trying to put in the TLegend are produced by RootFit and their names are defined by Roofit. May be there is a clever to find these names automatically but to make it simpler, I just did a gPad->ls() after executing the macro to see what are the real names of these objects:

root [1] gPad->ls()
Canvas Name=c1 Title= Option=
 TCanvas fXlowNDC=0 fYlowNDC=0 fWNDC=1 fHNDC=1 Name= c1 Title=  Option=

   TFrame  X1= 0.139000 Y1=0.000000 X2=0.159000 Y2=68.873708

That’s nice, I was actually wondering where you got those names form…but as it was very urgent for me, I used it and I saw this comment only now.

Thanks a lot:D
