c++ – Can resolved gmock MOCK_METHOD marked ‘override’, but does not override

Hi I’m trying to get a googleTest mock to compile with bazel in windows and I can’t get arround the error ChargerSupportMock::GetIbatt()’ marked ‘override’, but does not override

I feel I’m so close to the GMock for Dummies example but I can’t find the fix. gMock for Dummies

I can run a basic test without mock no problem so the base bazel / MinGw configuration seem to work.

Here is the file I’m trying to build:

#include <gtest/gtest.h>
#include <gmock/gmock.h>  // Brings in gMock.

class IChargerSupport
    virtual ~IChargerSupport() {}
    virtual void GetVbatt() = 0;
    virtual void GetIBatt() = 0;
using ::IChargerSupport;
class ChargerSupportMock : public IChargerSupport {

    MOCK_METHOD(void, GetVbatt, (), (override));
    MOCK_METHOD(void, GetIbatt, (), (override));


//using ::testing::NiceMock;
//using ::testing::AtLeast;

// Demonstrate some basic assertions.
TEST(Charger, BasicAssertions) {

    EXPECT_EQ(0, 0);


The command to start the test is
bazel.exe test –verbose_failures –compiler=mingw-gcc –test_output=all //UnitTest:AllTests

The build file is as follows

load("@rules_cc//cc:defs.bzl", "cc_library")

    name = "AllTests",
    tests = [

  name = "ChargerTest",
  size = "small",
  srcs = ["Charger_test.cpp"],
  copts = ["-IBusinessDev/Inc"],
  deps = ["@com_google_googletest//:gtest_main",

  name = "DummyTest",
  size = "small",
  srcs = ["Dummy_test.cpp"],
  copts = ["-IBusinessDev/Inc"],
  deps = ["@com_google_googletest//:gtest_main",

  name = "ChargerTest2",
  srcs = ["Charger_test.cpp"],
  copts = ["-IBusinessDev/Inc"],
  deps = ["@com_google_googletest//:gtest_main",

The output is:
