I am running vc in visual studio 2009. I have a code that I wrote to read a binary file a while back using c++ (all in a console). Now I am trting to update the code using a GUI. In the console version the file location was hardcoded.
char fileName = "c:\\.........";
stream = fopen(fileName,.....)
BUt and now I am using the openDialogBox to get the file and put the file name in a textbox.
I figured that I could just resuse my previous code completely by only changing the fileName setup. So I tried this
char fileName = textBox->Text->ToCharArray();
This does not work. I have tried array<char>^ fileName also.
So if anybody can help me on how to get the text out of a textbox into a format for the fopen(), it would really appreciate.
