Hi,

How about doing like this.

CString str;
char STR [10]="hello world";
str += STR;

//From where blanks came!!!?
str.TrimLeft();
str.TrimRight();

Then
TextOut(..., str);

Try it out.

Hi mkjoshi,

caution:
STR is defined in your code as a pointer to an array of 10 chars. "Hello world" needs an array of at least 12 chars (including the terminating zero).

char STR[12] = "hello world";

should solve the problem here.

It's just luck that the code doesn't crash...

Might be cleaner to say:

CString str = "hello world";
str.TrimLeft();
str.TrimRight();
TextOut(...,str);

The memory size allocated for STR is not enough. Make sure it can contain the string after strcat.

Hi,
Replace your code with this code and try out. This code should work

CString str;
char STR [100]="hello world";//Increase the size
CString strTemp;
strTemp.Format("%s%s",STR,str);//Append the string
strTemp.TrimLeft();//Remove space
strTemp.TrimRight();//Remove space
TextOut(...,strTemp.GetBuffer(0));
