Very useful!

That's a terrible idea! You are copying a string to an unasigned pointer. No memory has been allocated so the code can have fatal results!

I disagree. As with all things - it depends on the usage. The OP mentioned screensavers. So I'm guessing that he does not need to determine Idle states measured in seconds, but rather in minutes. If so, than pooling every couple of seconds does not in my opinion pose a great threat on the system. I'm not saying it is always acceptable, I am saying that because it is much simpler - it may be a better solution than hooks in some cases. And for the simplicity Lakamraju Raghuram gets my 5.

Marked as gimmecode. You realy should at least try before asking...

This might really help someone - you should add it as an answer to your question and accept it as a solution, so that the question itself is no longer marked as 'unanswered'.

That's why i suggested READING the article I linked to and NOT using GUID. At the end of the article there is a real live example of how to create your own guid-like id which can be shorter then the real guid, but has some specific limitations.

Thanks for the Expresso link. I wish I had it sooner :) Have a 5!

Are the values space separated? If not than the first number read would be 123 instead of 1... You should try debbuging to look at the array contents - what's the first number you read?

Try putting this into your file:
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24

EDIT: Also, try setting the array cells to 0 before reading anything:
memset( array, 0, sizeof( array) );

Can you post the file contents? Just to see what you are dealing with.
Also if the file has a 3x3 matrix of numbers and the array is 5x5 as in your example - you have too few numbers

See my updated answer.
Oh, and venkatmakam is right. You really shouldn't :)

The fix seems to work for Win7 as well, but you need to edit the registry yourself. See the update to my answer.

What is this? A wish? I think you have the wrong site for that buddy. Try asking questions instead..

homework + not even trying. I think I speak for most people here: we don't do homework. We did once, but no more, no more I say!

Read the forum guidelines - everyone here is more than happy to HELP. No one will do your work for you.

What Aescleal ment is:
struct node
CString Name;
CString Add;
CStringArray Str;


struct node
CString Name;
CString Add;
std::vector<cstring> Str;

Sorry - see Aescleal's answer instead - it's much better :)
