    Numeric to string help

    how would i go about assigning a numerical data type to a string/composite string, i am havig the following problem:
    i want to pass the following to the DrawCaption Api:

    int Score=1234;
    DrawCaption(...,"Your Score: " + Score ,...);

    but you have to pass a purely string varialbe so i tried this:

    int Score=1234;
    char ScoreText[] = "Your Score: ";
    ScoreText[8] = Score; //and i know this just passes the number to ascii character form
    DrawCaption(...,ScoreText,...);

    so as u can see no good, do i have to create my own class to do this or is there a pre built class for this, or am i just not using the correct syntax???
    any help would be great

    Use a string stream object.
    Code:
    #include <strstream>
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    
    using std::string;
    using std::strstream;
    using std::cout;
    using std::endl;
    using std::ends;
    
    int main()
    {
        string FinalString;
        int Score = 1234;
        strstream TempString;
    
        TempString << "Your Score: " << Score << ends;
        FinalString = TempString.str();
        cout << FinalString << endl;
    
        return 0;
    }
    I think that should be correct and give you a sample of what to do. Should output "Your Score: 1234"
