Simple Work with UNICODE

Simple Work with UNICODE

Simple Work with UNICODE

Hello everybody,
can anyone help me? :S

how can I get only one character from
WCHAR *str = L"string";
for example only "r", when I'm typing this
it gets "ring" and not "r"

please help me ...

RE: Simple Work with UNICODE

That is because you are using a null-terminated string and passing a pointer to the third character of the string.  In doing that it considers the third character onward your string.

Consider assigning Str[3] to a CHAR variable.

I'm waiting for the white paper entitled "Finding Employment in the Era of Occupational Irrelevancy"

RE: Simple Work with UNICODE

I know how works char variable, but I want to assign it in UNICODE, because of this I wrote there WCHAR.
can you help me to solve this problem? :S

RE: Simple Work with UNICODE

The MessageBox function 2nd parameter "Points to a null-terminated string containing the message to be displayed".

Well, make this home-made null-terminated Unicode (WCHAR) string (what's a problem?) and enjoy:


WCHAR *str = L"string";
WCHAR chr3[2] = {str[3]};

// Now you are free:
chr3[0] = str[4]; ...
and so on...
