See System.String.P trToStringChars () to get a wchar_t __pin*. You can then
use wcstombs() or WideCharToMulti Byte() to convert that wide-character
string to a narrow-character string.

Hi there! I've been having a lot of difficult trying to figure out a way to convert a terminated char array to a system::string for use in Visual C++ .NET 2003. This is necessary because I have some legcay C code that needs to process a string taken from a textbox, then I need to re-display the string as the textbox->Text. I easily found how to convert from system::string to char but I can't figure out how to go the other way!!

I can convert from a string to a char array (char) by using string.ToCharArray() function. Now how do I convert it back? The string looks like this: "000457". I've converted it to a char array: char = {0, 0, 0, 4, 5, 7}. Now I need to convert it back to a string. Thanks in advance for your help. Steve

I am surprised that a single character string is not auto-created from a single char. It is hard to find information on converting a char into a string, since most people ask how to convert char to string. I have a function that accepts a string, and I wish to access this function for each character in the string, individually. The only solution I have found is: char c = 'A'; string s = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetString(c);

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
