Hi, I need to use the MessageBox to output a msg box in my COM component. This requires the message text, the 2nd parm, to be of type LPCWSTR.  My string is in wstring.  How can I convert this to LPCWSTR?  Thank you.

Just use the 'ca_str()' member, i.e.

wstring wstr = L"test";

LPCWSTR lpcwstr = wstr.c_str();

That's it.
