I think an easier way is like this

CString s;
s.Format("You pressed %c",PressedChar);
MessageBox(s);

Why don't you just do it the easy way, using a CString that is formatted with CString::Format (similar flags to printf), then pass this CString to the messagebox ?

MessageBox will work only inside a CWnd derived object.
use AfxMessageBox() instead.
