Sample text

In Windows, the word "window" has a precise meaning. A window is a rectangular area on the screen that receives user input and displays output in the form of text and graphics. The MessageBox function creates a window, but it is a special−purpose window of limited flexibility. The message box window has a title bar with a close button, an optional icon, one or more lines of text, and up to four buttons. However, the icons and buttons must be chosen from a small collection that Windows provides for you.

The character string is stored in static memory and uses 7 bytes of storagethe 6 bytes of the string in addition to a terminating 0. You can also define an array of characters, like this: char a[10] ; In this case, the compiler reserves 10 bytes of storage for the array. The expression sizeof (a) will return 10. " ; In either case, the string is stored in static program memory with a 0 appended at the end, thus requiring 7 bytes of storage. Wider Characters Nothing about Unicode or wide characters alters the meaning of the char data type in C.

Only the ones that have string arguments. And you don't have to rewrite them. It's already been done. H. The strlen function is declared like this: 23 size_t __cdecl strlen (const char *) ; and the wcslen function looks like this: size_t __cdecl wcslen (const wchar_t *) ; So now we know that when we need to find out the length of a wide−character string we can call iLength = wcslen (pw) ; The function returns 6, the number of characters in the string. Keep in mind that the character length of a string does not change when you move to wide charactersonly the byte length changes.
