      iNextNWords--;
      while((iNextNWords!=0)&&(pChar=strtok(NULL, m_sDelimiterList)))
      {
//            pChar=strtok(NULL, m_sDelimiterList);
            if(pChar!=NULL)
            {
                  sRet+=" ";
                  sRet+=pChar;
            }
            iNextNWords--;
      }
      return sRet;
}

CString CWord::ParseNChar(unsigned int iChars)
{
      char *pChar=_strdup(GetBuffer(GetLength()));
      CString sRet;
      ReleaseBuffer();

      for(unsigned int i=0;i<iChars;i++)
      {
            sRet+=pChar[i];
      }
      _mbsnbset((unsigned char *)pChar, ' ', iChars);
      CString::operator=(pChar);
      TrimLeft();
      return sRet;
}
Everything compiles fine (should do what I want right!):) but the indicated line below fails to put the CString into the CWord.

      CFlexCheckDoc* pDoc = GetDocument();
      CString sTemp=pDoc->m_sFlexData;
      CString sTTemp;
-->      CWord wWord=sTemp;
When I make the change as follows the assignment works fine
      CFlexCheckDoc* pDoc = GetDocument();
      CString sTemp=pDoc->m_sFlexData;
      CString sTTemp;
      CWord wWord;
      wWord=sTemp;
I am looking for some one who can break it down for me why this is happening.  You know not repeat the same mistake.

Thanks Guys.

Hi the problem is you have = operator overloaded, but you don't have constructor with CString as parameter.  ( commented in your case )

whenever u say

CWord word = "some string"  // this envokes  constructor with CString not
                                                          // = operator.with CString

& incase of

CWord word;// creates an object of CWord
word = "some string" // this will invoke your = operator

this is the only different.

to run this remove comment of constructor with CString

CWord::CWord( CString & str )

OK.

Ok I am following you.  As the lines that I commented out suggest I did have it as part of the code.  When I used the assignment as you suggested it was never completed.  I did a trace and found that no sooner was the constructor called that the destructor was called and the string never made it into the new variable.  Can you expound on this please.

Thanks for you timely response.

I need an explaination of why
//CWord::CWord(const CString & stringSrc)
//{
     // CString::CString(stringSrc);
//}
is not filling it's self with the string passed int

Because all you are doing in CWord's constructor is call the base class's constructor in its definition. You are not initializing the base class. To initialize it, you will need

CWord::CWord(const CString& rhs) :
  CString(rhs)
{
  // Nothing needed here
}

Notice the colon (:), which when used in the constructor signifies the beginning of the initialization list. For more information about initializing base classes, read about it in any C++ book.

could this be accomplish using the assignment operator also?
CWord::CWord(const CString & stringSrc)
{
   CString::operator=(stringSrc);
}
