Hi!

I know how to do the following in VC++, but I'm finding it's a little different using Borland's Turbo C++ 4.5 for Windows!

Please take a look at the following code. What I want to do it take the last two COUT lines and place them into a MessageBox.

In VC++, I use CString to declare tempstring (example: CSTRING tempstring). I then initialize tempstring with the MB message (example: "You entered: " + m_LoginName;). How do I get a MessageBox to do this with Borland's little, outdated compiler (I have to use it for school)?

The code:

#include <iostream.h>
int main()
{
int Seconds = 0;

cout << "How much whipped cream is in the can (percentage)? " << flush;
float Balance;
cin >> Balance;

float WhippedCream = Balance * .50;

      while (Balance > WhippedCream)
            {
            ++Seconds;
            Balance *= .98;
            }

cout << "\nIt will take " << Seconds << " seconds to empty half of the ";
cout << "\nremaining whipped cream." << endl;

return 0;
}
