I need to convert from char[] to LPSTR.  Is it tecnically correct to do this way:

char Source[25] = {"\0"}; //is this the correct way to initialise it?

strcpy(Source, "TEST") ;

TV_INSERTSTRUCT TreeCtrlItem;
TreeCtrlItem.item.pszText = (LPSTR)Source;

The conversion is perfectly legal (in fact it is the same), but I do believe that the correct way to initialize the array is
char Source[25] = { 0 };

"\0" is a pointer that is != zero. Therefore I believe the initialization would not be as you expected.
