Here is pseudocode:

static LPCWSTR previous;

VOID myfunc(LPCWSTR input){

  if( (wcslen(previous) != wcslen(input)) || (wcscmp(previous, input) != 0)){
    //they are different - do something
  }

  previous = input;
}

This is not working... What can I do to get this to work? Thanks!

previous will always be equal to input, since both points to the same memory portion, better you do:

static WCHAR previous[100];  // some proper size here

VOID myfunc(LPCWSTR input){

  if( (wcslen(previous) != wcslen(input)) || (wcscmp(previous, input) != 0)){
    //they are different - do something
  }

  wcscpy(previous, input);
}
