I merged the code to fit with my project, i had set display mode enabled and with your help my application reads from the file, but i am running in a little problem, i don't know why it says display mode not supported as the error, my application is attached to a panel from an interface made in C#, and the interface eliminates a file with the size of the panel and then the app reads it. Do you know what's happening?

Thank You very very much!

Just for the record, here's the C++ STL implementation for a little more tidiness

+ Code Snippet

std::string is a memory safe dynamically allocated string. You can use it just like you used it in DBP.

You can get a const char* from an std::string with:

But because DarkGDK failed to be const correct, dbText() accepts only a char*, so you are forced to cast away the qualifiers:

That gets a little ugly I suppose, but it's not your fault. Alternately, you can copy the string into a buffer before printing it, just like what you'd do with integers:
