I am now doing a Embedded Visual C++ program for the Pocket PC platform.

I would like to ask how to read, using eVC code, from a text file that is on the Pocket PC?
It would be nice if sample codes are provided.


Thanks in advance.

You can use Windows API - ReadFile, CreateFile etc.
also there's good article on PocketPC here - http://www.codeproject.com/ce/cetreeview.asp
The ZIP file - http://www.codeproject.com/ce/CETreeView/CETreeView.zip
includes a class called FileStream (in FileStream.h) - it's kinda wrapper for the APIs - so you won't bother calling them.

using namespace System::IO;

openFileRead(String* fileName)
{  
     String* lineOfTextIn;
     StreamReader* input = new StreamReader(fileName); //this creates an instance of a stream
                                                                                     //of a stream objec that is connected to
                                                                                     //the file name passsed in

    lineOfTextIn = input->ReadLine();//Will read the next line of text from your file and pass
                                                     //back a string object that is set equal to the lineOfTextIn
                                                     // string object
}

//I am not sure if this is what you are looking for becasue you are doing it for a PocketPC and I have never done any programming for those.  If you are just trying to read a text file from a pocketPC this should work

You can use also the CFile and CArchive classes.
In fact, eVC++ and VC++ are almost identicals with a few exceptions, most related to some controls.

CFile file;
CString line;
if (file.Open("yourfile.txt", CFile::modeRead)) {
     CArchive ar(&file, CArchive::load);

     while (ar.ReadString(line)) {
           // do some processing with 'line'
     }
     ar.Close();
     file.Close();
}
