Use CStdioFile class and CStdioFile::ReadString function:

BOOL ReadString(CString& rString);

Having CString variable use sscanf to read two int variables from it.

Hi SarwanGul,

your code looks a little weird right now.
let me see if i got your problem right.

you have a file (say 'def.txt') which consits of two numbers seperated by a ','.

[def.txt]
123,456
or
[def.txt]
12.34,56.78

you like to read this numbers and store them to two variables (lets say two double vars).

is this correct??

if so
you should
- open the file for reading (you did this, but the return value of Open func is not a CString but a BOOL telling you if the open was successful)
- read the line to a string(you have to decide if you like to use MFC obejcts and functions -CFile, CString etc.- or the C++ specific string and iostream rountines)
- split the string and assign numbers to values

need any help with this??

Hi!
U can use this code

----------
    CFile   pfile;
    CString str;
    CString buff;
    long    lNum1 = 0;
    long    lNum2 = 0;
    TCHAR *tcData;
    if(!pfile.Open("d:\\Text.txt", CFile::modeRead))
    {
        return;
    }
    int len = pfile.GetLength();      
    tcData = new TCHAR[len + 1];
    tcData[len] = '\0';
    pfile.Read(tcData, len);
    CString szBuff(tcData);
    int pos = szBuff.Find(_T(","));
    if(pos > 0)  // if found ',' character
    {
        lNum1 = _ttol(szBuff.Left(pos + 1));
        lNum2 = _ttol(szBuff.Right(szBuff.GetLength() - (pos + 1)));
    }
    long lMul = lNum1 * lNum2;  // result
    delete[] tcData;
    pfile.Close();  
----------
Good luck
