# cleveref + listings

\documentclass{scrbook}

\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{cleveref}

\begin{document}

Ref: \ref{test}.
Cref: \cref{test}.

\begin{lstlisting}[caption={Test},label={test}]
test
\end{lstlisting}

\end{document}


This produces Ref: 1. Cref: ?? 1.. I expected something like Ref: 1. Cref: Listing 1.

I get a LaTeX Warning: \Cref reference format for label type 'lstlisting' undefined on input line 9.

• Works for me. What versions are you using? – Yiannis Lazarides Mar 10 '12 at 5:44

Solution 1

\crefname{lstlisting}{listing}{listings}
\Crefname{lstlisting}{Listing}{Listings}


Solution 2

Download the newest version from here (cleveref.dtx and cleveref.ins) and run latex cleveref.ins.

• As I mentioned in the comments, your original MWE works fine if you just run it twice. – Peter Grill Mar 12 '12 at 4:09
• It didn't, even after running it 10 times, because of the LaTeX Warning: \Cref reference format for label type 'lstlisting' undefined on input line 9.. Seriously, my cleveref version was to old :). – Dennis Mar 12 '12 at 4:27
• The link shows version 0.19 2013-12-28. tlmgr info cleveref tells I run 0.19 2014-02-26 which I assume is even newer. Still, I ran latex several times, and it would not detect the listing as a listing. Had to go with solution 1 :( – mcnesium Nov 26 '15 at 10:20
• @Dennis Just a small hint: The call to \Crefname is superfluous in the above case. As mentioned in section 8.1.2 of the cleveref documentation, "If the corresponding \Crefname is undefined when \crefname is called, it will automatically define \Crefname to be a capitalised version of \crefname, using \MakeUppercase." – Casimir Aug 11 '16 at 22:03
• For those who run into the same issue having installed the current version as @mcnesium: Make sure that listings is included BEFORE cleveref`! – tbolender May 28 '17 at 16:06
