I'm trying to slowly convert my MFC code to .NET code. My example works fine until I try and use a CString.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks

What exactly do you whant to know? How to use String^ in pure managed code, or how to convert CString <-> String^ in mixed managed/unmanaged code?

It's mixed Managed/Unmanaged code. I think I've found it...

CString sStr = "This is a test string";
String ^teststring = gcnew String(str);
.
.
.
delete teststring;

Let me know if there's a better way,
Thanks

Yes, this is OK. To make CString from String, use CString constructor:

String ^teststring = L"This is a test string";
CString sStr(testing);
