Convert string to char*
Hey,

I want to convert the engine Str to char* but the compilers gives me great errors which i don't really understand. probably i don't know how to use it.

Tried operator CChar16 * and operator ()

The following code:
PHP Code:
rakpeer1->Send(message.operator CChar16 *, strlen(message.operator ())+1HIGH_PRIORITYRELIABLE_ORDERED0UNASSIGNED_SYSTEM_ADDRESStrue); 

Gives me this error:
PHP Code:
error C3867'EE::Str16::operator const CChar16': function call missing argument list; use '&EE::Str16::operator const CChar16' to create a pointer to member 


Thnx,
~Dynad

RE: Convert string to char*
Code from my project:

Code:
wchar_t* f = (wchar_t*)file;

size_t origsize = wcslen(f) + 1;
const size_t newsize = 100;
size_t convertedChars = 0;
char nstring[newsize];
wcstombs_s(&convertedChars, nstring, origsize, f, _TRUNCATE);

converts CChar* [file] to char* [nstring].

regards,
Kevin

RE: Convert string to char*
For Esenthel's example: My compiler says
"EE:Str8 can't be converted to char*"

RE: Convert string to char*
Perhaps some of us could get together and make a RakNet tutorial with login and chat for Esenthel Engine with client and server projects?

Perhaps similar to Player demo (which used ogre): http://princeofcode.com/blog/?p=249
(warning uses a slightly older version of raknet)

Would that be useful? I remember some other people said they were using RakNet, but can't exactly remember who.

RE: Convert string to char*
ok but when i try to convert it back to a Str i get strange Chinese text. probably the cast is not correct.

I tried Str test = (CChar) (packet->data+1);

The data in the packet->data is correct debugged it smile

RE: Convert string to char*
(char*) works fine pfft

Ive a tiny question about the GUI, when i add a message i need to open the chat bar first with a button -> thats set on the letter T. But when i push on T it adds the letter T right away in the chat bar.

TextLine *chatbar;
I tried to use chatbar->clear(true); before chatbar->visibleActivate(true); but this is not working.

RE: Convert string to char*
when you detect 't' char, you can try immediately calling Kb.eat(KB_T) for example, this should eat the input
