It would be easier for a char* using memset. Add one additional space which you replace with the terminating 0 afterwards:

char* cs = new char[7];
memset (cs, ' ', 7);
*cs[6] = '0x0';

CString str = cs;
delete [] cs;

Or

void Fill  (CString& str, char cFill, int nCount)
{
    char* cs = str.GetBufferSetLength (nCount);
    memset (cs, cFill, nCount);
    str.ReleaseBuffer (nCount);
}

To construct directly, just use:

CString s(' ', 6);

If you want to assign to another string:

CString s = "whatever";
s = CString(' ', 6);
