call member function with TExec()

I want to catch mouse events in a canvas of my GUI. The GUI is implemented as one class using QtRoot in a complex framework.

Im trying to call a member function of a class with the TExec() method within the same class. I don't want to use macro, because I've to use some member variables out of my Class.

Int_t myClass::myFunction() {

    TQtWidget *HistWidget = tQtWidgetGUI; ...

    HistWidget->GetCanvas()->AddExec("ex","myExec()"); ...


void myClass::myExec() {


But the only thing I get is:

 Error: Function myExec() is not defined in current scope FILE:(tmpfile) LINE:1  Possible candidates are...
 filename line:size busy function type and name

I already looked on the "exec*.C" examples, but they didn't really help me.

What am I doing wrong??
