I am very new to ruby and am trying to create a form using fxRuby. There will be a lot of forms so instead of putting them all in one file in their own classes I am trying to make them all separate files, placing them in the /Forms directory from where the main app is. The trouble I am having is that when I make, for example "LoginForm.rb" and then require it in my main code, I get the error: test.rb:10:in `initialize': wrong number of arguments (1 for 0) (ArgumentError ) from test.rb:10:in `new' from test.rb:10 However if I copy and paste the code from LoginForm.rb to test.rb then everything runs with no problems. Like so: #require 'Forms/LoginForm.rb' require 'fox16' include Fox #-- Login Form class LoginForm < FXMainWindow def initialize(anApp) # Initialize base class first super(anApp, "testapp", :opts => DECOR_ALL, :width => 400, :height => 300) # Place the list in a sunken frame sunkenFrame = FXVerticalFrame.new(self, LAYOUT_FILL_X|LAYOUT_FILL_Y|FRAME_SUNKEN|FRAME_THICK, :padding => 0) end def create super show(PLACEMENT_SCREEN) end end #-- End Login Form xaApp = FXApp.new("testapp", "FXRuby") LoginForm.new(xaApp) xaApp.create xaApp.run The above code works, but if I move the code between the Login Form quotes to Forms/LoginForm.rb and uncomment the top require, then I get the error that I posted above. I dont understand what the difference would be. Can anyone help me out?

If I do what you describe as causing the error (LoginForm code in separate file), with the requires you list, I get a different error: ./Forms/LoginForm.rb:1: uninitialized constant FXMainWindow (NameError) from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in `gem_original_require' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in `require' from app.rb:1 If I move the first require after the require 'fox16'; include Fox; pair, it works, even with the LoginForm code in a separate file.

Ah, my apologies. I had made a typo, my LoginForm.rb was called LoginFom.rb. Indeed there was also file of the correct spelling with a class expecting no parameters.
