Reversing content of a TEdit

Hi folks, I'm studying C++ and I couldn't find on the net any reference by about how I would go about doing this, so any help would be appreciated.

What I need is to have the data typed into the text edit box  inverted and shown on another box when one pressed a button.

So if one typed on one box "123456" when pressed the button the other box would show "654321".

Thanks.

Get the content into string and do a reverse of it and then display it on another editbox.
What IDE you are using. I hope you are using Builder XE.

for reversing you can use std::reverse(),
String text = textbox1.text;
std::string str = text.c_str();
std::reverse(str.begin(), str.end());

onclick() event, add the reversed string to text property of textbox2
i.e,
textbox2.text = reversedString;

I don't have Builder XE. So can't give you exact code. But the given code can help you to proceed.

Subrat, I'm using XE6 C++ Builder. I couldn't make it work, I'm getting two errors:

[bcc32 Error] Unit1.cpp(26): E2285 Could not find a match for 'string::basic_string(const string&)'
  Full parser context
    Unit1.cpp(24): parsing: void _fastcall TForm1::Button1Click(TObject *)


and

  Full parser context

Here is my code:
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------

#include <vcl.h>
#include <string>
#include <cstdlib>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <cstring>
#pragma hdrstop

using namespace std;
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#pragma package(smart_init)
#pragma resource "*.dfm"
TForm1 *Form1;
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
__fastcall TForm1::TForm1(TComponent* Owner)
	: TForm(Owner)
{
}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
void __fastcall TForm1::Button1Click(TObject *Sender)
{
	String textVariable = Edit1->Text;
	std::string str = textVariable.c_str();
	String reversedString = std::reverse(str.begin(), str.end());
	Edit2->Text = reversedString;
}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will post you the code after 2hrs.

1. TEdit->Text returns UnicodeString
2. I don't think there is any inbuild API to reverse the string in UniCodeString class.
3. So we converts UnicodeString to std::wstring/std::string by using _wstr() or c_str().
4. Now we can reverse the string using reverse algorithm. i.e std::reverse(). You need to include "string" and "algorithm" to make the whole thing to work.
5. Now string is reversed and we will convert it to UnicodeString by using wcstombs(). Because TEdit->Text needs UniCodeString.
6. Here I have created separate function ToUniStr() to convert wstring to UniCodeString. This can be reusable where ever needed.

#include "string"
#include "algorithm"


// Convert wstring to UnicodeString
String ToUniStr(const std::wstring &str)
{
   char *cBuf = new char[str.length()+1];
   memset( cBuf, 0, str.length()+1);

   wcstombs(cBuf, str.c_str(), str.length());

   String aBuf = cBuf;
   delete[] cBuf;
   return aBuf;
}


//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
void __fastcall TForm2::Button1Click(TObject *Sender)
{
   String str1 = Edit1->Text;
   std::wstring wstr = str1.w_str(); // str1.c_str() is also OK here

   // Reverse the string
   std::reverse(wstr.begin(), wstr.end());

   String str2 =  ToUniStr(wstr);
   Edit2->Text = str2;

}
