I try to pass a string variable from ASP to VC++ DLL.
When i send "abc" from ASP to  BSTR Username in VC++ DLL, he only print "a"
How can i pass complete string to VC++ DLL?

ASP:
Set Com = Server.CreateObject("NETCLUB.Com")
ComResult=Com.Add(123,"abc")
Set Com = Nothing

VC++ DLL
STDMETHODIMP CCom::Add(LONG UserId, BSTR Username, LONG *Result)
{
      AFX_MANAGE_STATE(AfxGetStaticModuleState());

      Message record;
      memset(record.type,  0, sizeof(record.type));
      memset(&record.user, 0, sizeof(record.user));
      memset(&record, 0, sizeof(Message));

      record.user.UserId = UserId;
      strncpy(record.user.Username, (const char *)Username, 22);
      record.user.Username[22]= '\0';

      *Result=StreamClient("whamzeh30", SERVERPORT, record, "");

      WSACleanup();
      return S_OK;
}

>>strncpy(record.user.Username, (const char *)Username, 22);

You are getting a BSTR*, you cannot just 'strncpy()' that into a char buffer. Use

__bstr_t bstr(Username);

strncpy(record.user.Username, (const char *)bstr, 22);// invoke 'operator char*( )' to convert to 'char*

Oh, BTW, you'll have to

#include <comdef.h>

for the above.

_bstr_t bstr(Username); working good.
