When I do that I get the following error:

error C2679: binary '=' : no operator defined which takes a right-hand operand of type 'char *[2052]' (or there is no acceptable conversion)

I am using VC++6 and MFC
thanks

    char buf[50]
    CString myString;
    ...

    myString = buf;

 
or

    char *buf[50] // array of pointer
    CString myString;
    ...

    myString = *buf;

First of all, are you trying to convert an array of chars or an array of "strings" ? (according to your example, you have char* buf[50], which is an array of strings (buf[50] is a string or array of characters)).  So, if you are just trying to convert an array of characters, then maybe you can do this:

char buf[50];
CString mystring;

strncpy(buf, "Bla Bla", sizeof(buf));
mystring = buf;

If you have an array of "strings" (array of array of characters), then maybe you can do this:

char* buf[50];
CString mystring;

buf[0] = new char[50];
strncpy(buf[0], "bla Bla", 50);
mystring = buf[0];
delete buf[0];

Hope that helps.

You should always initialize your variables when you declare them.

For example:
const char* buf = "Hello World";
CString myString = "Hey";

myString = myString + buf;

AfxMessageBox(myString);

Change the declaration of
char *buf[50];
to
char buf[50];
