Hi,

In MFC, we can use TRACE as printf to output some varialbles or objects.  Then, what are the similar functions in SDK?  

Thanks,

Yes, see the macros (_RPT# and family) in crtdbg.h.

I'm pretty sure you can also use OutputDebugString, although there are no 'printf-style' parameters to it.

Well, I had to change my propesed answer to a comment because I was slow (no answers when I started writing my answer). Too long answer or am I a slow writer?

--------------

Is there any? Don't know. Anyway here's my TRACE.

// in header

#ifdef _DEBUG
      void TRACE( LPCTSTR format, ... );
#else
      #define TRACE
#endif

#define __countof(array) (sizeof(array)/sizeof(array[0]))

// in source code
#ifdef _DEBUG
void TRACE( LPCTSTR format, ... )
{
      va_list args;
      va_start( args, format );

      int length;
      TCHAR buffer[ 512 ];

      length = _vsntprintf( buffer, __countof(buffer), format, args );

      // was there an error? was the expanded string too long?
      ASSERT( length >= 0 );

      if ( length > 0 )
      {
            //printf( buffer );
            OutputDebugString( buffer );
      }

      va_end( args );
}
#endif

Wyn, I think JMu's answer is way better than yours. I suggest you retract your answer. [I had written it as a comment because OutputDebugString does not do what the TRACEx macro series do]

JMu's answer is a complete one.
