concatenation of 2 strings

I have 2 strings:
CString str1 = "123                     ";
Cstring str2 = "789011";
when I use: CString str3 = str1.Left(7) + str2.Left(6);
I get: "123789011" but I want to keep the spaces from str1 (that's why I do str1.Left(7) and and not str1.Left(3).
How can I do that (I mean, to get "123       789011")?

Your code is 100% correct.
There is no way you can get anything else than what you expect to get("123       789011").
Something else must be wrong.

Hope you havenet uset LeftTrim() or things like that.

Your code is absolutely correct.

Probably you did something like GetBuffer() to get buffer to string data and NOT called REleaseBuffer() to free it.

Check your code for this

I think  , to  get the result  "123       789011" you simply add this two strings

ie  ,
     CString str3;
     str3 = str1 + str2;

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.

sisimon ,
CString str3 = str1.Left(7) + str2.Left(6);

is necessary.

Have you counted out the spaces following str1?
It's much more than 4.

The problem is not here.

Regards

twg: There is no problem with your code. I hope you are sure that you have these lines as follows:

CString str1 = "123                     ";
CString str2 = "789011";
CString str3 = str1.Left(7) + str2.Left(6);

and you are not manipulating str1 after initializing!!!
