libtooling and FindMatcher

Sumner, Brian via cfe-dev

I'm novice with clang libtooling, I try to learn with easy c++ code. I try to parse/print typedef expression like below lines:

namespace DEBUG {
    typedef void(*function_pointer_t)(int&);
    typedef int myInt;

clang++ -Xclang -ast-dump -fsyntax-only output:

`-NamespaceDecl 0x3e4fe331a8 <test.h:3:1, line:7:1> line:3:11 TESTS
  |-TypedefDecl 0x3e4fe333b8 <line:4:2, col:42> col:18 function_pointer_t 'double (*)(int &)'
  | `-PointerType 0x3e4fe33350 'double (*)(int &)'
  |   `-ParenType 0x3e4fe332f0 'double (int &)' sugar
  |     `-FunctionProtoType 0x3e4fe332b0 'double (int &)' cdecl
  |       |-BuiltinType 0x3e4fe32b60 'double'
  |       `-LValueReferenceType 0x3e4fe33210 'int &'
  |         `-BuiltinType 0x3e4fe32a40 'int'
  `-TypedefDecl 0x3e4fe33420 <line:5:2, col:14> col:14 myInt 'int'
    `-BuiltinType 0x3e4fe32a40 'int'

To parse it I create a class that inherite from MatchFinder::MatchCallback and overload MatchFinder::MatchCallback::run :

 class TypdefDeclFinder : public MatchFinder::MatchCallback {
    virtual void run(const MatchFinder::MatchResult& result)

        auto Item = result.Nodes.getNodeAs<clang::TypedefDecl>("typedefDeclMatch");
        if (!Item) return;
        if (!IsDeclFromInputFiles(Item, result.SourceManager)) return;
        if (!Item->getIdentifier()) return;
        if (IsInsideTemplateContext(Item)) return;

But Item pointer is equal to null for the first typedef. I can parse/print function, variable, class, struct template, method templates, enum ... with MacthFinder::MatchCallback but this way doesn't run on typedef. What's wrong with this code?

thanks in advance for your help.
