I need to call SysAllocString() function and get BSTR value I have a code like this

 BSTR Key = SysAllocString(L"6393570000001130");
 long  resultFromVB  = t->ShowForm(&Key);

in above code I dont want to hard coded value "6393570000001130" instead of this I want to put variable in it which is updated dynamically when this method is called in which above code is written
for example

string ABC(string str){

 BSTR Key = SysAllocString(Lstr);
 long  resultFromVB  = t->ShowForm(&Key);

}
when I do above this I get an error what should I do

Hi NomanAhmed

 U can get this job done using the _bstr_t wrapper class.

Try this:

      string str;

      BSTR MyBSTR;

      str="Hi how are u";

      _bstr_t tempbstr(str.c_str());

      MyBSTR = tempbstr; //now MyBSTR is allocated

      ::SysFreeString(MyBSTR); //deallocating after use


Dont forget to include

#include <comdef.h>
#include <string>

Regards
Bijo.
