Cannot Convert Parameter Error...Please Help

P: 1
This is the function I'm getting the error on:

S32 GuiAviBitmapCtrl::fileOpen()
{
S32 rval;
if (!dStrcmp(mAviFilename,""))
return MOVERR_NOVIDEOSTREAM;

rval = AVIFileOpen(&mPFile, mAviFilename, OF_SHARE_DENY_WRITE, 0);
if (rval)
{
fileClose();
return rval;
}

return MOVERR_OK;
}



and this is the error:
Error 132 error C2664: 'AVIFileOpenW' : cannot convert parameter 2 from 'StringTableEntry' to 'LPCWSTR'

Any help is appreciated.... thanks !

It is complaining because mAviFilename is of type StringTableEntry and AVIFileOpen is expecting type LPCWSTR (which is a pointer type). You will need to provide a converstion between the 2 types.

It is possible that if StringTableEntry is a class or structure that it has a member function that will convert the data and return the correct type for you.

A quick google suggests

mAviFilename.getString()
