I use C++Builder and get value from Text property of a TEdit  object, it's type is ansi string but I can not work with ansi string (I want convert it to integer number when user enter a number to that Tedit object).

Like this:
int got;
char *s;
s = A->Text;//A is a TEdit object
got = atoi(s);

And Builder report an syntax error : "Can not convert System::AnsiString to char *..." in line s = A->Text;

Please help me to convert value from A->Text to number in variable got.
Thank you and Happy New Year!

I have known the answer not like what you said (C++Builder do not have StrtoInt)
function convert ansi string to string (I found it in FAQ in Borland site) c_str()

If you really are using C++ Buildeer which is for windows that's the way to convert strings to integers and integers to strings... I've tried that many times and it works.. Just try it and you'll see that it works....

int got = StrToInt(Edit1->Text);

ShowMessage(IntToStr(got));

This one works.... I tested it... That's if you are using Borland's C++ Builder....

This functions work because C++ Builder's libraries are created with Pascal, and the same functions work....

I hope you accept my answer now, because it's correct. YOu asked a question and answered it, so I think I deserve the credit...
