    I have a problem with member functions and nested classes which I am stumped on.

    Basically I want to set up a thread which can access a specific instance method from the calling class

    The code is set up like this:

    ServiceImplClass.cpp - > gets a message, and usually services a request by building a reply and sending it using a function (SendMessage) from its BaseClass (Service.h). In this specific case I want to set up a thread (which can be in the form of a nested class in ServiceImplClass.cpp) which can send off a message every x seconds, without blocking the main thread.

    I can't seem to find a way to allow this. I understand that you can usually pass a function pointer to the new class/thread to allow access to the function. However I can only have one instance of the service running at one time due to some design specific issues, which mean I have to send all messages out through that instance.

    class Service -------> void SendMessage()
    class ServiceImplClass --------> class SimpleThread

    Does anyone have any tricks I could use here. I'm sure it's something which is staring me in the face!

    Many thanks :)
