When you create a namespace inside your .fl definition, FLTK2's fluid will create a cxx file that clearly does not respect the namespace correctly.

Instead of doing a:

namespace XXX {

and adding all widgets and functions inside the namespace, fltk2's fluid creates a .cxx file that does:

using namespace XXX;

While this amazingly compiles, it is SO wrong that I have no words to begin to describe it.  By Doing this FLTK is flattening the namespace which can lead to all sorts of weird name clashes.

Ya, I don't think fluid is aware of certain C++ coding styles.

As a workaround for the short term, you might try making
two #include files, the first with the 'using namespace xxx {'
and the other with the '}'.

As we said many, many times, fluid does NOT and will NOT implement all the c++ coding styles, instead, it tries to help solving 'basic' c++ issues.
This (limited) namespace capability was mainly developped to support the fltk namespace and thus making our own libs code more orthogonal with the  fltk coding standards, if any.
This said, I could not care less if the coding standards that we use are ugly to you. If you have some better code implementation to show us in fluid : please do, I will review it personally, otherwise we all do that for free and must spend time for our paid activities too.

The same problem avoids mingw to compile the generated code. I guess the solution is not that hard, here is my patch for FunctionType.cxx:

I couldn't get Eclipse's SVN working properly, there may be some errors with the format of this patch. Basically, I changed NamespaceType::write_static method, and appended a new at the end of code (in write_code method).

Index: FunctionType.cxx
--- FunctionType.cxx (revision ?)

The patch I posted above is not complete thus not correct, it doesn't work for inner namespaces.
