Hi!
I've to convert a wide char string to tolower. This the code I used.


s32 id = profileList->getSelected();
stringw strtoDelete = profileList->getListItem(profileList->getSelected());
if(!strcmp(reinterpret_cast<const char*>(tolower(strtoDelete.c_str())),reinterpret_cast<const char*>("default")))
{
profileList->removeItem(id);
}




But I got the following errors:

Error 5 error C2143: syntax error : missing ')' before '{' d:\goldminer\source\game\gamemenuprofilestate.cpp 237
Error 4 error C2661: 'strcmp' : no overloaded function takes 1 arguments d:\goldminer\source\game\gamemenuprofilestate.cpp 236
Error 3 error C2664: 'tolower' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'const wchar_t *' to 'int' d:\goldminer\source\game\gamemenuprofilestate.cpp 236
7 IntelliSense: argument of type "const wchar_t *" is incompatible with parameter of type "int" d:\goldminer\source\game\gamemenuprofilestate.cpp 236

tolower (I guess std::tolower) only works on single chars, try this instead:


static std::wstring ToLower( const std::wstring& String )
{
std::wstring Result( String );

for ( size_t i = 0; i < Result.length(); ++i )
{
Result = std::tolower( Result, std::locale::classic() );
}
return Result;
}
