    Just a quick Q,

    Using Visual C++, Windows Forms, how can I bring up a message box to show a variable value?

    Code:
    #using <mscorlib.dll>
    #using <System.Windows.Forms.dll>
    
    using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
    
    int main(void)
    {
    	System::String ^sTemp("Test 1,2,3");
    	MessageBox::Show(sTemp, "Test");
    	return 0;
    }

    MessageBox.Show only works with string variables. You can use the equivalent of sprintf for other variables such as ints, doubles etc. What other variables do you want to use?

    EDIT:

    You can go on and on with this example...

    Code:
    #using <mscorlib.dll>
    #using <System.Windows.Forms.dll>
    
    using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
    
    int main(void)
    {
    	int iInt = 10;
    	float fFloat = 1.23F;
    
    	System::String ^sTemp("Test 1,2,3");
    	MessageBox::Show(sTemp, "Test String");
    	MessageBox::Show(iInt.ToString(),"Test Int");
    	MessageBox::Show(fFloat.ToString(),"Test Float");
    	sTemp = System::String::Format("{0:(###) ###-####}", 8005551212);
    	MessageBox::Show(sTemp, "Test Format");
    	return 0;
    }
