Anyone use this with C++ yet? I'm trying to place simple text on a DB screen/window, telling you to enter a 0 or 1 (and then press enter), and have it place that integer into a variable. An error shows up in the C++ code. I would think it would be quite simple, doesn't seem like it should be too complicated! Can't figure it out! Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thanks!

It most likely returns a c-string which size will be set to outSize.

Note: the above code is just written on the fly and not tested, as such it might contain errors. It displays the general approach to doing it even should it not work as-is thouogh.
