How to convert a string to a PWCHAR

How can I convert a string (or a wstring) to a PWCHAR?
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. PWCHAR temp;
  3. wstring wstr;
  5. // Basically I want to do 
  6. // temp = wstr
  7. // but casting didnt work
  8. // temp = PWCHAR (wstr) 
  9. //  error C2440: 'type cast' : cannot convert from 'std::wstring' to 'PWCHAR'
Any help?

You cannot convert a wstring to a PWCHAR unless you allocate an array the sizeof the wstring and copy the wstring to it.

However, you can use the c_str() method fo wstring to expose the string as a const WCHAR. In this case you would:

  1. wstring wstr;
  2. PCWCH temp = wstr.c_str();
