Can't seem to be able to refer this listing, figures and cite works fine. Suggestions? Writing on my bachelor's paper over at OverLeaf

  • (1) welcome, (2) as always on this site, you are much much more likely to get fast help if you provide a full but minimal example showing your problem. Then others can just copy this an start debugging immediately. Here we need to guess 3/4 of the document. BTW: what does this code has to do with tcpinputlisting, this seems to be just listings

    Seems to me that you need to use \ref{list:LuaKalk}.

  • @daleif i did consider posting the whole main.tex but tought it would contain mostly Irreverent information. Commented Apr 20, 2018 at 13:24
  • Not the whole doc, a minimal one, only using what ever is relevant to show this problem. Preparing such a minimal document (basically you make a copy somewhere else, and start removing stuff), is a vital tool in learning to debug LaTeX. People have a tendency to steer away from examples that are 1000s of lines long

This is just a normal user error, the label is list:LuaKalk but you refer to \ref{LuaKalk} which should have been \ref{list:LuaKalk}

  • Worked, i tried this earlier but stopped before acutally refreshing the preview, as the auto-completion-suggestion bar didn't show this as an option. Thanks! Commented Apr 20, 2018 at 13:23
  • @MelvinLangvik The auto completion probably looks for explicit \label{key}, but here this is hidden in the belly of listings
