When using the GetPrivateProfileSection () I get according to MSDN: "The buffer is filled with one or more null-terminated strings; the last string is followed by a second null character." What's the best way to split the string after the null characters? I want to store each string in a CString. Thanks...

Hi joakimf,

this functions fills a CStringArray with the strings passed:

void
SplitString( char* t, CStringArray& array )
{
 CString s;
 while ( *t != 0 )
 {
  s = t;
  array.Add( s );
  t += s.GetLength() + 1;
 }
}

hope that helps,

ZOPPO
