Hi.  Using Visual C++ Builder 5 how can I get the ASCII representation of a number.

I want to print the list of them in a RealEdit.  (I actually asked this question before, but had trouble changing the syntax from the given printf format to this one)

String char1;
for (int i=0; i < 255; i++) {
 Char1 = //help ?????????????
 RichEdit1->Lines->Add((String)i + " => " + char1);
}

Thanks for the help

This is a simple program that prints that ASCII representation of each of the codes

for (int i = 0; i < 255; i++)
{
    printf("%d\t%c\n", i, i);
}

Hope this helps!!!

hi Lmoen

if u use borland C++Builder (not Visual C++ Builder, that doesn't exist but there is Visual C++ from Microsoft) u can use the AnsiString Class.

Use this code lines:


String char1;
for (int i=0; i < 255; i++)
{
  char1 = AnsiString::StringOfChar(i, 1);
  ListBox1->Items->Add((String)i + " => " + char1);
}

Here's a nice function to convert a number to a std::string

#include <sstream>
#include <string>

template <typename T>
std::string Ttos(T arg)
{
   std::ostringstream buffer;
   buffer << arg; // send to the ostringstream
   return buffer.str(); // capture the string
}

Will a "String" take an sprintf()?
If so, try this.

String char1;
for (int i=0; i < 255; i++)
   {
   sprintf(char1, "%d", i);
   RichEdit1->Lines->Add(char1);
   }

You may have to give it the address
   &char1
