I have no idea why Str is null. I get the message saying Str is blank. I am using Dev C++ Plugin Template BTW.

Function:


RC:


If I change the resource to this and output Str in a message box it is NOT Null:


DBP Code:


Help me fix this problem and I will have a plugin released very soon.

Thanks,

Read the help files or search the forums for the correct way to return strings, it's been covered loads of times. I also don't recommend Dev-C++ and you seem to be using a very old version of the plugin template for it not to handle strings correctly.

@Diggsey - I did and I found this several times on the forums:


Is newer version of DBP different? Also I tried LPSTR and char * and I wouldn't know how to convert a DWORD to string.
