How do I copy the contents of an RWCString into an
LPTSTR? Attempted the following:

RWCString prodCode;
LV_ITEM   description;

strcpy(description.pszText,prodCode.data());

(RWCString is from rogue wave)

Try casting each side appropriately, sometimes you have to give the compiler some help.

What sort of problem are you having with that?

Does pszText point to a memory location that can store the string?  Is it long enough?
Does the data() member return a NUL terminated string?

More information: I am attempting to do as above, to assign the rogue wave string to a member of a structure (MFC) that is used in the InsertItem member of CListCtrl. I am attempting to add a subitem to an item in a CListCtrl, and using this structure seems to be necessary.

That said, perhaps this question would be better in the MFC forum?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

what is the definition of RWCString?
also, if you are using LPTSTR you should use _tcs functions and not str functions

To make sure you have allocated the memory for the string, use:
description.pszText = strdup (prodCode.data();
