To convert an STL string to a CString I always do this:

CString cs = stlString.c_str();

And the other way:

std::string ss = (LPCTSTR) cs;

If you are using a char array (assuming it's a null terminated string) you
could assign a point to it to either type. If you want to copy from CString
or std::string to a char array you'd have to ensure that the buffer is large
enough and use one of the strcpy() variants depending on the type of the
characters being copied (ANSI, Unicode, etc.)

I have a problems on the file io.
when I use the dilog box to pick a txt file.
code is like below.

CFileDialog dlg(.......);
if(dlg.DoModal() == IDOK)
{ Cstring a;
     a= dlg.GetPathName();

the "a" will assigned a filename of the txt file.
a is a Cstring type variable.
but in standard c++ ,I use the

string p;
p=????;//p is the file full path.;
if (!inFile)
cout << "Unable to open file";
where p is a standard string class.

My question is How can I traslate among Cstring ,string and char[].

Is there any common methods?
Thank you! everyone who read my post!
