How to Convert CString to BYTE

HI can anyone show me how to convert a CString to a BYTE array. This a a small bit of code I am using to pass a string from a textbox to a CString but I need to convert the CString to a BYTE array

CString ss = "123ABC";
BYTE* bp = (BYTE*)ss.GetBuffer(ss.GetLength());

BYTE expected[16] = bp; //"This is a test";

My code works with the string "This is a test" but I need to pass the string from a textbox I know how to pass from the textbox to a CString but cant get the conversion from CString to BYTE array.

Thanks
Nigel

You should rather use

CString ss = "123ABC";
BYTE* bp = (BYTE*)ss.GetBuffer(ss.GetLength());

BYTE expected[16] ;

CopyMemory(expected,bp,sizeof(expected));

Just using '=' won't work.

use this


      CString strtrest = "123ABC";
      BYTE *bptr = (unsigned char*)strtrest.GetBuffer(0);
