You can use LPCSTR or const char*. I use const versions as a reminder that I'm not supposed to change the contents of these strings - the compiler will throw an error out if you do anything that you shouldn't.

Just make sure that your project is set to use multi-byte characters rather than Unicode; I think projects default to Unicode. However if for whatever reason you don't want to change the settings then just use MessageBoxA like you said.

Well actually i had been using just plain messagebox but with the _T() function to pass strings. but i just realized while i was writing it it would be better to use messageboxa (or Whatever function A lol)
