    converting clipboard text 2 a CString

    Hi to all!
    I have a problem with converting a string of text in the clipboard to a CString. My erroneous code looks like this:

    HANDLE clipTxt = GetClipboardData(CF_TEXT);
    //append to a CString
    m_searchPath += reinterpret_cast<const char*>(clipTxt);


    I don’t get a valid CString after the appending.
    Anyone please show me how to do it properly?

    Using the Clipboard

    Read it all - or look at the example code for "Paste".
