wxFileOffset to long?

Post by ouch67 » Sun Jun 22, 2008 9:11 am

I'm trying to take a text hex string and convert it into a file position.

So I'm wondering how I do that in wxwidgets exactly?

I know to send the string to ToLong, but I can't seem to find a way to convert that long into that wierd wxFileOffset vaar type that every file command seems to need in wxwidgets.

Also there really needs to be more info on wxFileOffset and why it's even needed. I can only find 2 sentences in the docs mentioning it.

What's strange about it? It's just a typedef to a long or a long long (depends on your platform).

So, all you have to do is this:

wxFileOffset offset = MyLongVariable;

I just tested it, works fine.
