I am trying to do an example from my book but it doesnt tell me what buffer should be. I love incomplete books! Can anyone help me out? This is how its used.
			// print ascii code and key state
			sprintf(buffer,"WM_CHAR: Character = %c ", ascii_code);
			TextOut(hdc,0,0,buffer,strlen(buffer));

Hey bud,

In my experience, buffers in examples are char*. However depending on the function, you may or may not need to allocate the memory yourself.

Hope that helps,

Dave

buffer is normally a char[maxsize]. You normally don't use a char*.

I meant that the parameter is of type char*. By allocating yourself i meant, as you said, char[MAX_SIZE].
