Hi experts!

I have a project in MS VC 2008 Win32 unmanage code. Look my code, it produce errors, but is good to find what I need. I need to convert lVar to (LPCTSTR) and later to convert (LPCTSTR) to long. Is that hard in C++ ? I want to do this using standard function without need to include additional files which I should deploy in customer computer.


       CStringArray csaFile1;
         csaFile1.SetSize(3,50);
            long lVal= 279362937;
        csaFile1.Add((LPCTSTR)lVal); // here produce error – need example code

            for(int x=0;x<csaFile1.GetSize();x++)
            {
                  
                  long hSetting=(long)csaFile1[x]; // here produce error – need example code

                  StradisDecoderSettings_Delete( (STRADISDECODERSETTINGS)hSetting);
               
            }

Hi dvplayltd,

why do you want to use strings in a CStringArray here? You can simply use an array of 'long's. I.e. replace the 'CStringArray' with 'CArray<long,long>' and remove the '(LPCTSTR)' cast ...

Hope that helps,
