INT to String

This shouldn't be this difficult....

I have a global variable:

correctKey = 1;

Open in new window


I want to do some debugging, and MessageBox the value sometimes.

So, I init a CHAR with an extra spot for the terminating 0, right?

char ck[2];

Open in new window


then I assign that to the INT value, right?

    ck = correctKey;

Open in new window


Then try to debug message.
    MessageBox(NULL,"Correct Key Is...", ck,NULL);[code]

Open in new window


I have tried using std::string, atoi , c_str() , etc. Apparently, I haven't figured out the right combination.

Thanks,

char ck;

ck = itoa(correctKey);  //  http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/clibrary/cstdlib/itoa/

and not sure if you have to append it as one message:

 MessageBox(NULL,"Correct Key Is..." + ck,NULL);

                    itoa (myNumber,myChar,10);

                    MessageBox(hwndDlg, myChar, "Information", MB_ICONINFORMATION);
