I want to know how to turn an integer into character to display from a message box:

NewFile.nPolys is the integer (part of a structure) that i want to insert at the end of the string "The number of polys is ".

MessageBox(NULL, <this is the function i want to use>, "whassup", NULL);

thanks

char s[1000];

wsprintf(s,"The number of polys is %d",NewFile.nPolys);
MessageBox(NULL,s,"Whassup",NULL);

1000 chars is a bit overkill though :)

40 should do fine.
