    Im newbie here first let me say hello to all members of our forum

    I'm not a programmer . I only know little about vb6 by reading some ebook and source code .

    Now i want to do it in vc++ 2005 . But it really is diff than vb6 .

    I have some question here about read text file . I hope you will help me .

    if (System::IO::File::Exists("settings.ini"))
    				System::IO::StreamReader^ sr = gcnew System::IO::StreamReader(System::IO::File::OpenRead("settings.ini"));
    				System::String^ text = sr->ReadToEnd();
    				this->textBox1->Text = text;
    i have settings.ini file
    i read settings.ini and write to text .

    I have 3 combobox in Form1 . I want to read first Value (0.2) to combo1 next one to combo2 and last one to combo3 at form load event .
    in vb6 only some line of code i can do this
    If Left(text, 2) = "hp" Then
                Combo1.Text = Mid(a, 4, 1)
            ElseIf Left(text, 2) = "mp" Then
                Combo1.Text = Mid(a, 4, 1)
            ElseIf Left(text, 3) = "stm" Then
                Combo1.Text = Mid(a, 5, 1)
            End If

    I am afraid that you have to start by learning C++, otherwise the only thing we can do is to provide you the answers on a golden platter.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
