mixkats is on a distinguished road

in OF8, the externalWallHeatFluxTemperature BC in the constant heat transfer coeff mode, can read the ambient Temperature (Ta) from a tableFile, or as a type of Function1, as it is mentioned in it's description.
What I would like to do is to turn also the heat transfer coeff to be read from a tableFile, make i t a Function1.
Despite all of my effort, I couldn't manage it, as I don't have the luxury to understand C++ from point zero.
Below is attached what I managed so far:

I compiled it, If understood correctly, but when I run my case I get:

    For debug level (= 2) > 1 this is considered fatal

I could reeeeeeeally use some help!!
Thank you
