I am having the same problem, did anyone manage to find a solution for this yet?

I also obtained several errors with "could not be resolved". I have spend my whole day trying to fix it without success. Are there some progress?

Thank you.

Hi,

The problem is that Eclipse does not read the header files without the
Code:
#ifndef 
#define
format. createFields.H and other similar header files do not follow that format. I do not know how to solve, but may be the following experience may help people to solve it.

A Work Around :
Create a project and then click open file. Open the .C file which is not in the project directory. Now all problems will be resolved. As you can see, i created a project with icoDymFoam.C and opened LaplacianFoam.C ...... Even the auto complete function works!

Tobi and apple-tree like this.

I have just tried this solution and actually works in the sense that no warning appears within the source.
But I am afraid that in this case will not be possible to compile the code. Moreover in my case the auto complete function did not work.

Hi Alessandro,

I am familiar neither with openfoam nor eclipse. And yes, it cannot be compiled when it is not in the workspace. But when i can open like that, it is very much easier for me to edit it, use autocomplete (in mine it works as shown), double-click on a class and open the file it was declared etc. After editing it in eclipse comfortably, i wmake it from terminal.

Please do tell if you find any other solution!

Hi Dheepan,
I must check why in my case autocomplete does not work. Which is your eclipse version? Mine is Indigo. Anyway in my case, the auto complete function and search for declaration file works only for the function directly imported with #include.
All you have to do is to add manually to the search path the directory containing the included header.

Cheers
Alessandro

Hi all,

Im using
  • OpenFOAM-2.1.x compiled in debug
  • Ubuntu 12.04
  • Eclipse 3.7.2 Indigo
  • wmake and wclean work in eclipse
  • a default solver works fine that is compiled by eclipse
  • every lninclude folder in openfoam is imported into the project

I can't seem to do code completion or resolve errors that should be fine since the headers are in my include path. If this is an issue with #ifndef, then how can Eclipse get around its own addition of #ifndef to classes defined in Eclipse? i went through the documents on the wiki....but maybe they are outdated with a new version of Eclipse? Anyone experiencing the same thing?

It seems that everyone has the same issue.
Anyway, may I ask you if you are able to perform the step by step debug?
I tried a lot but at the end I had to give up

Thanks
Alessandro

Nope, not able to do step-by-step debugging. Im tempted to move over to Netbeans here.

hello,
are there any new ideas about fixing this issue with eclipse? code competion and classbrowser would really be nice.... I tried older versions until eclipse helios, without real success (ubuntu 12.04).

Anyway, I also had a problem getting "Allwmake" to run properly (not found-in-Path-error) in eclipse after defining a make-target like explained in the eclipse-foam tutorial.

To get the "Allwmake" as make-target run in eclipse try following procedure:
properties->c/c++ build ->environment.
set PATH variable
append a variable to native environment
${ProjDirPath}
from variable dropdown list.
Now all compilation outputs are passed to eclipse-console (works in helios, but i expect the same for juno)
thx dirk

to follow up, the problem is somehow related to the eclipse indexer which cannot resolve symbols, methods etc from header files. See eg
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/733997/

I tried on eclipse indigo to play around with the properties->c/c++general->Indexer->files to index up-front and added headerfiles here by tracing back in the definitions.

This feature does not exist in latest release (juno) because it was only a workaround in the former versions.

I could omit many of these "symbol not found remarks", but unfortunately not all.

Hi,

I am also having problems with using wmake, I always get the two warnings, and an error at the end, saying that ld returned a satus of 1, so the application could not be compield:

/usr/bin/ld: warning: libPstream.so, needed by /home/niko/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.1/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib/libOpenFOAM.so, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)

and

/usr/bin/ld: warning: libfileFormats.so, needed by /home/niko/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.1/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib/libtriSurface.so, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)

even though I tried to follow the tutorial, and setting up wmake like described. The compilation using wmake in the console is working just fine. Does any one know how to fix this?

The problem with 'scalar' can be solved by adding the variable WM_DP to Properties for (Project) -> Paths and Symbols. Set it to any value, e.g. 1, for the C++ compiler (actully I added it to all configurations and all languages). I guess if you compile OpenFOAM with single precision, you should add the variable WM_SP instead. I didn't find a place in the OpenFOAM source code, where these variables are set, so I guess it is done by wmake somewhere (perhaps related to the environment variable WM_PRECISION_OPTION).

This is more of an annoyance since the compile still works but is there a way to fix these things?

Hi all,

I am back in programming with eclipse and OpenFOAM.
At the moment I rebuild a thermodynamic model for using it in 2.2.x

All variables are resolved and everything is working fine.

Hello Tobi,
sometimes I also got all the classes resolved, but I am not able to understand why it does not works always.
Does it is always reproducible for you?

Thanks

Tobi, how did you manage to resolve all variables? I'm still stuck with this issue. I moved to qt-creator in the meantime...

Hi all,

hmmm,... I am not sure why everything is working there.

1. I copied the thermodynamic files into $FOAM_RUN/../developement/thermodynamics/

2. I added all the paths (lnInclude) from the Make Files into eclipse
3. finished.


At the moment I am not building any stuff so I can not say if everything is resolved all the time.

I had just opened a new thread about this issue of OF+eclipse, as it seems that information is a bit outdated. The thread can be found here :

OpenFoam 2.X and Eclipse Kepler

================================================== ==========


Hi everybody,

New to OpenFoam, I'm trying to set up a development environment using Eclipse (Kepler version) and OpenFoam 2.2.2.

I have tried many options and also tried to follow the tutorial at
http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ho...M_with_Eclipse

but was not really successful in having Eclipse to be correctly able to edit OF files.
Instructions on the OF Wiki might be out dated with regards to OF 2.X and latest Eclipse versions.

The problem are many "symbol 'XXX' could not be resolved" in some (but not all) source files.

I have tried to import subdirectories or complete OF root, as an Eclipse C++ project.

I have tried to add Symbols (like WM_DP for instance) in the project <Properties> under <C/C++ General>/<Paths and Symbols>/<#Symbols> menu.

I have tried to add all or only some lnInclude directories under <C/C++ General>/<Paths and Symbols>/<Includes> menu.

None of these worked.

It seems Eclipse get lost in indexing the project.

Anybody has succeeded in having OF 2.X handled correctly under Eclipse ?

Regards

Lionel
