Hi,
I need to add multiple bstr strings using C++, I am aware to add bstr we can:

int lenBuffer;
BSTR bstr1,bstr2, bstr3,;
//assign some values to bstr's
lenBuffer = SysStringLen(bstr1) + SysStringLen(bstr2) + SysStringLen(bstr3);
BSTR bstrQuery;
bstrQuery = SysAllocStringLen(L"",lenBuffer+1);
wcscat_s(bstrQuery,lenBuffer+1,bstr1);
wcscat_s(bstrQuery,lenBuffer+1,bstr2);
wcscat_s(bstrQuery,lenBuffer+1,bstr3);

is there any better way of doing it, I have around 6 bstr strings(or more) to concatenate, whats the best possible way of doing it?

TIA

The '_bstr_t' helper class (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/zthfhkd6(VS.80).aspx) has an 'operator+()' which comes in handy here:

 
#include <comdef.h>
 
BSTR bstr1,bstr2, bstr3,;
 
_bstr_t _bstr1(bstr1);
_bstr_t _bstr2(bstr2);
_bstr_t _bstr3(bstr3);
 
_bstr_t res = _bstr1 + _bstr2 + _bstr3;
 
BSTR bstrQuery = res.copy();

What is the significance of adding:
#include
Will this work in pure win32 environment, currently I am developing in VS IDE 2005. but will have to port only to pure win32 api environment
