how to set wide-char html to CHtmlEditCtrl


I've got a WCHAR * variable which holds html with non-english characters in it (could be chinease, turkish, japanese, hebrew, whatever)

I need to get that html into my CHtmlEditCtrl 's document.  So i use:

      CString temp(lpWideCharStr);

Problem is, I see that lpWideCharStr holds the correct value, but temp already has an invalid value (q. marks instead of the characters)

How do i create a CString with the correct value?  if this is not the way to do it, then how??

I need it ASAP so I guess 500 points would be appropriate.

You need to compile your porject with UNICODE char set.

CHtmlEditCtrl::SetDocumentHTML requires a LPCTSTR parameter.

 If UNICODE  char set is used, it will be a const wchar_t, if not, will be a const char *.
If you're not using VC++.NET, but VC++6.0, define UNICODE and _UNICODE in your project settings, preprocessor definitions.

Thanks for your response!!

Is there a way to do it locally to the function and not affect the whole project?

ok, your suggestion worked, i didn't use it since it's not an option (the project is too big to change to unicode w/o investing a lot of time in the conversion.)

BUT, I suppose you deserve the points :)
