Hi,

I would like to convert unmanaged char to managed string in VC++ .net. I was able to convert char * to String^ using the below statement ,however I was not able to convert char to String^.

String ^ CXMLUtil::ConvertChartoString(const char *ch)
{
      String ^ strValue=gcnew String(ch);
      return strValue;
}

Please let me know how to convert unmanaged char to managed string String^.

Thanks

Hi ,

After including the code suggested by you, I got another error saying "Error      224      error C4980: '__box' : use of this keyword requires /clr:oldSyntax command line option". I dont want to change the command line to /clr:oldSyntax.

Please advise me.

Use something else. Convert, ASCIIEncoding, ...  Can you show your code?
Simple constructor? That's from Unciode:
String^ szGreekAlpha = gcnew String( L'\x0319',5 );

           wchar_t ch = 'x';
            String^ s = gcnew String(&ch);
and
            char c = 'y';
            String^ s2 = gcnew String(&c);


For both narrow and wide characters.  (Note the & - it won't compile without that for single characters)
