I haven't seen C++ code in more than 10 years and now I'm in the need of developing a very small DLL to use the
(System::Net::NetworkInformation) to make a ping to some
The argument where I'm receiving the
remoteAddress is a
FREObject which then needs to be transformed into a
const uint8_t *. The previous is mandatory and I can't change anything from it. The
remoteAddress has to be received as a
FREObject and later be transformed in a
const uint8_t *.
The problem I'm having is that I have to pass a
String^ to the
Ping class and not a
const uint8_t * and I have no clue of how to convert my
const uint8_t * to a
String^. Do you have any ideas?
Next is part of my code:
// argv[ARG_IP_ADDRESS_ARGUMENT holds the remoteAddress value. uint32_t nativeCharArrayLength = 0; const uint8_t * nativeCharArray = NULL; FREResult status = FREGetObjectAsUTF8(argv[ARG_IP_ADDRESS_ARGUMENT], &nativeCharArrayLength, &nativeCharArray);
FREGetObjectAsUTF8 function fills the
nativeCharArray array with the value of
argv[ARG_IP_ADDRESS_ARGUMENT] and returns the array's length in
nativeCharArrayLength. Also, the string uses UTF-8 encoding terminates with the null character.
My next problem would be to convert a
String^ back to a
const uint8_t *. If you can help with this as well I would really appreciate it.
As I said before, non of this is changeable and I have no idea of how to change
nativeCharArray to a
String^. Any advice will help.
PS: Also, the purpose of this DLL is to use it as an ANE (Air Native Extension) for my Adobe Air app.
