Segmentation violation in converting TMessage to a class


I’m working on development a framework using ROOT I/O.
And I have some difficulties to convert from TMessage to user-defined class.

Here’s my test code to convert from TMessage to user-defined class

[code]MyClass* outevt = new MyClass();

outevt = (MyEvent*)msg->ReadObjectAny(MyEvent::Class());

And here’s the result including error

[code]OBJ: MyEvent MyEvent Simple event class
OBJ: TMessage TMessage Message buffer class

*** Break *** segmentation violation

Is there any wrong syntax to use TMessage::ReadObjectAny() function?
After using it, I can’t access any member function of MyClass.
(When I try to use, it makes segmentation violation)

I need your help please.

Best Regards,

How was the TMessage filled?
Did you get check that outevt is non zero?


Hi Philippe,

Thanks for replying me again.

I filled TMessage as below

And I also checked the lengths of TMessage are non-zero by using TMessage::Length() function.
(And I also used TMessage::SetReadMode())

I think

doesn’t work correctly but I have no idea how I can fix that.

Best Regards,

Humm … Is the TMessage create and filled in the same session as the read?
In which case you are most likely missing:msg.Reset(); // Start at the beginning msg.SetReadMode();


I didn’t write them in my question post but I used TMessage::Reset() and TMessage::SetReadMode() both actually.

Does anyone have a example using TMessage with user-defined class?

[quote]Does anyone have a example using TMessage with user-defined class? [/quote]See several example of TMessage usage in $ROOTSYS/tutorials/net

Also I assume you did generate the dictionary for your Event class.

If you send a complete example reproducing your problem I will take a look.
