const functions allow mutating variables from UI scope

Post by Guest »

I've got an inventory item to represent stamina and a const function that mutates one of the variables of the class

class ActorStamina : Inventory {
...
protected int _regenTick;
...
void PauseRegeneration(int ticks) const {
_regenTick = ticks;
}
...
}

I have a status bar and I call this function

class PlayerStatusBar : BaseStatusBar {
...
override void Draw (int state, double tic) {
stamina.PauseRegeneration(1000);
}
...
}

I shouldn't be able to modify anything because it's const, but I still can from the UI scope.

Attached test PK3. Give yourself "Derp" on the console.
I think it's a good idea to fix this as soon as possible. I'd try to help, but for some reason, I can't find the damn code that handles const functions at all.

Bumping this because it's basically nearly a year since it was reported and it seems it was overlooked.
