Can the CArray class be used with the function Polyline?

It seems that the function Polyline doesn't accept as its first argument a CArray collection of CPoints. I wrote a program in which Polyline is used with a common array and it works fine, but if a CArray class is used instead, the program doesn't compile and gives the following message: cannot convert from 'class CArray<class CPoint,class CPoint &> *' to 'class CPoint *'.
Is there a way to make Polyline use the CArray class?

You can - if you use a CArray of POINT. E.g.

CArray<POINT, POINT> point_array;

// fill array

Polyline ( point_array.GetData(),point_array.GetSize());

"GetData()" will return a POINT* or LPPOINT respectively.

PS: The above is "CDC::Polyline()" - if you want to use the Win32 version, you would use

Polyline ( hdc, point_array.GetData(),point_array.GetSize());

It wasn't necessary to use POINT; CArray<CPoint, CPoint&> worked as well. The trick is to use the member function GetData() to get a common array.
Thanks very much.

>>CArray<CPoint, CPoint&> worked as well

Both are in fact the same - CPoint is a very "thin" wrapper

Thank you!
