I have the following code:
HTML Code:
enum L4DW_WeaponSlot {
	L4DW_WeaponSlot_None = -1,
    L4DW_WeaponSlot_Primary = 0,
    L4DW_WeaponSlot_Secondary = 1,
    L4DW_WeaponSlot_Throwable = 2,
    L4DW_WeaponSlot_HeavyHealthItem = 3,
    L4DW_WeaponSlot_LightHealthItem = 4

enum L4DW_WeaponId {
    WEPID_NONE,             // 0
    WEPID_PISTOL,           // 1
    WEPID_SMG,              // 2

L4DW_WeaponSlot WeaponSlots[L4DW_WeaponId] = {
    L4DW_WeaponSlot_None,				// WEPID_NONE       waring starts here
    L4DW_WeaponSlot_Secondary,			// WEPID_PISTOL

It is supposed to make a constant list of enums, I don't know why the compiler generate the warning message 'warning 213: tag mismatch enum?' ? I get warning on every line in L4DW_WeaponSlot WeaponSlots[L4DW_WeaponId]. How can I get rid of this warning?

Any ideas? Thanks!

When you use an enum value to index an array, it expects that value's tag to be the tag of the thing you're putting into the array. Here's an example:

PHP Code:
enum enumStructsAreBad {

If you try to assign to stupidStruct[aFloat] then it's going to want a float. In your code, you're giving it a L4DW_WeaponSlot where it wants an int.

You can view_as every assignment, tag every value in the enum, or make the first letter of L4DW_WeaponSlot lowercase so it's a weak tag.
