How to convert System::String to CString??

Hi

How do I convert a managed System::String to a CString. I need to handle
unicode characters ( Japan and Chinese ) as well as "normal" ANSI
characters.

I have tried the following

char* p =
(char*)System::Runtime::InteropServices::Marshal:: StringToHGlobalAnsi(
msg ).ToPointer();
CString str(p);

which works fine as long we are not dealing with Japanese. How do I handle
both situations??

Regards Morten

You can refer to the following KB article, maybe you can find good
resolution from it:

You'd probably need to stay in unicode (compiling your code for unicode,
instead of ANSI). Ohh, BTW, there's a CString constructor that already takes
a System::String* as an argument :)
