C++ Coloring strings in windows forms and Function Arguments

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ok so i recently made the switch from vjass to C++ and im having issues with what is listed in the title
ie:
vjass string:
String = R2S(RealVariable) //real to string, Real == Float
|cFFFF0000String|r = String

so im trying to find out how to color it in C++

that would be this?

String = FloatVariable.ToString(Color->RGB(255, 0, 0))


Other question:

in vJass function arguments were essentially a single local variable (non array)
but apparently in C++ you can take arrays and there are ways to define how the function takes an argument
I wanted to know the little querks about it, ie:

void main (int a, int* b[]) {};

where a is a basic int argument, and int* means int array correct?
also how would you take a string as an argument if you #include "string"

I am making a windows forms application and not a console application
DISCLAIMER: i have searched both of these but have not got a definitive answer

Not sure on the first bit, but for the second bit:
You can pass any data type through a function, to pass a string (using the std::string):
Code:
void myFunction(std::string myString);
And to pass an array (in this example, an int array):
Code:
void passArray(int* myArr);
Another useful thing to get the length of the array after:
Code:
int arrLength = sizeof(myArr) / sizeof(int);
Replace sizeof(int) with sizeof(array data type).

im currently using #include "string" so i that i can use string-type variables
and after doing some research i found out that instead of arguments being string they should be string&, think thats correct?

as far as coloring in windows forms application:
Code:
DisplayBox->Find("string text you are coloring", substring position start, substring position end, RichTextBoxFinds::MatchCase); 
DisplayBox->SelectionColor = Color::Red;
// substring position start must be smaller than or equal to substring position end

If you are using Windows forms, then don't bother with the std::string stuff, you may as well use .NET System.String. Unless you want to... but I see no point if you're using managed C++.
