Compiler Warning (level 1) C4350

behavior change: 'member1' called instead of 'member2'

An rvalue cannot be bound to a non-const reference. In versions of Visual C++ before Visual Studio 2003, it was possible to bind an rvalue to a non-const reference in a direct initialization. This code now gives a warning.

For backward compatibility, it is still possible to bind rvalues to non-const references, but standard conversions are preferred wherever possible.

This warning represents a change of behavior from the Visual C++ .NET 2002 compiler. If enabled, this warning could possibly be given for correct code. For example, it could be given when using the std::auto_ptr class template.

If you get this warning, examine your code to see if it depends on binding rvalues to non-const references. Adding a const to the reference or providing a additional const-reference overload may solve the problem.

This warning is off by default. For more information, see Compiler Warnings That Are Off by Default.

The following sample generates C4350:

// C4350.cpp  
// compile with: /W1  
#pragma warning (default : 4350)  
class A {};  

class B  
{  
public:  
   B(B&){}  
   // try the following instead:  
   // B(const B&){}  

   B(A){}  
   operator A(){ return A();}  
};  

B source() { return A(); }  

int main()  
{  
   B ap(source());   // C4350  
}
