Hi sprnova,

The easiest is the substring method.

system::String MyString = 'This is a string of chars';

  MyString.SubString (1);    // 'T'

  Mystring.SubString (6,2);   //  'is'



Good Luck,
Kent

Hi sprnova,

Sorry.  My head's been in DB2 all morning.

The offset (start) parameter to SubString() is relative 0, not relative 1.

system::String MyString = 'This is a string of chars';

  MyString.SubString (0);    // 'T'

  Mystring.SubString (5,2);   //  'is'




Good Luck,
Kent

>> or a long integer

string s = "124";

long l = Convert.ToInt64(s);

I'll try again but in the right language this time...

System::String ^s = gcnew System::String("124");

long l = Convert::ToInt32(s);

Using substring can I copy the variable into a char of a certain length:

char name[15];

Once you have the sub-string you can do with it as you wish...
// Original string is 10 chars in length

System::String ^s1 = gcnew System::String("1234567890");

// New string is 4 chars in length ---> do with it as you wish!

System::String ^s2 = s1->Substring(2,4);
