    Cool int to LPCTSTR


    The SetDlgItemText() function takes in a LPCTSTR datatype as one of its arguments.

    I was just curious how to convert an integer into this datatype.

    Thanks in advance!

    You could use SetDlgItemInt()


    convert to a string or char array.

    char szBuf[MAX_PATH]={0};
    _snprintf(szBuf, MAX_PATH-1,"%d",iValueToBeDisplayed);
    SetDlgItemText(hWnd, ID_EDIT,szBuf);

    Or if you're using C++ (which I assume since you cross-posted there),
    SetDlgItemText(hWnd, ID_EDIT, boost::lexical_cast<std::string>(your_int).c_str());
