I click on new game, and a character generation dialog pops up, so I enter my information and forget to enter my age on it. I press the "done" button and it should alert saying that my age has not been defined. Apparently it is not doing that. Any idea why?
// bAge = buffer for Age (char array)
// pcAge = unsigned short int that the buffer converts into.
unsigned short int pcAge = 0;
char bName[30];
char bAge[15];
// Pressing "Done" and does an error check.
						SendDlgItemMessage(dWnd, IDC_PCAGE, WM_GETTEXT, sizeof(bAge), (LPARAM)bAge);
							pcAge = unsigned short int(bAge);	
							/* Error Check -> If pcAge is empty, alert user and return TRUE */
							if (pcAge < 1)
								MessageBox(NULL, "Please Enter Your Age", "Error", MB_OK);
								return TRUE;

Can't convert a C string to an integer that represents that value by using a cast. You have to use a function like atoi to do this.

Happy birthday ;-)

#include <sstream>
#include <iostream>

int main() {

char age[] = { '1', '5', '0', '\0' };

std::stringstream ss(age);

int a = 0;

ss >> a;

std::cout << a << '\n';

return 0;

Your 150 today
