>> Ascii (represented as UINT)
By the way ASCII is represtented as char.
Then also it will like this

unsigned int c = 'a';
CString str;
str += c;

If you find it is char the simply replace
unsigned int c = 'a';
with
unsigned int c = 'a';

in this case the method parameter is UINT nChar, this nChar value is 103 (for 'g') and not 'g' itself.

for a 4 byte UINT. Only the last byte is used if you are storing char.

Let me take your case then
UNIT c = 'g';
...


CString str;
str = c;  // c will be converted to char, and then assigned to str.

hi rageev,

when compiling this code:
UINT nChar = 103;
CString str = nChar;

i get an error (on the line -> CString str = nChar;)
 : error C2440: 'initializing' : cannot convert from 'UINT' to 'ATL::CStringT<BaseType,StringTraits>'

i'm working with visual studio 2005

Try this way
UNIT c = 'g';
CString str(c);

If it does not work then try this
UNIT c = 'g';
CString str((char)c); // explicitly typecase UINNT to char.
