pongtextouterror.png At first I thought the problem was the string not having a null terminating character at the end but I made a console app and did everything the same except the output was using cout instead of TextOut. I tried debugging it but the value of s was "0" so I'm not sure what the problem is. C++ windows api visual studio 2008 prof ed
void ScoreDisplay(HDC hdc, RECT* prc)
{
	
	std::stringstream ss;
	ss << g_iScore[0];
	std::string s(ss.str());
	
	SetBkColor(hdc, RGB(0, 0, 0));
	SetTextColor(hdc, RGB(255,0,0));
	TextOut(hdc, 200, 100, s.c_str(), 100);
}

g_iScore[0] has the value of 0. It's an int.

What is the TextOut function?

It looks like you are using stringstream and string correctly. The display acts like s.c_str() is not NULL-terminated, but it should be since c_str() is supposed to automatically append a NULL character at the end.


EDIT: nevermind... Antheus beat me with facts =(
