In a constructor can I assign a standard string object like this?
ScreenEntityAnimation::ScreenEntityAnimation(string Input):FileLocation(Input)
{
   // yadda yadda
}

Or do I need to copy it explicity? Thanks in advance. Mark Coleman

Sure you can, it will use the copy constructor of the string instead of using the default constructor + assignment operator.

You can always do that if there is a constructor for the object matching what you put. You can even put a parent class's constructor there with arguments.
