    I have the following code, and I want to pass the variable test1 into the form, so that the form can read my test1 value. The var will be passed to SetParameter, a method under Form1. But I've encounted the following problem:

    error C2664: 'void System::Windows::Forms::TextBox::set_Text(System::String __gc *)' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'int' to 'System::String __gc *'

    error C2039: 'SetParameter' : is not a member of 'System::Windows::Forms::Form'


    Form1.cpp main:
    Code:
    int APIENTRY _tWinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance,
    HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
    LPTSTR lpCmdLine,
    int nCmdShow)
    {
    int test1;
    string line;
    System::Threading::Thread::CurrentThread->ApartmentState = System::Threading::ApartmentState::STA;
    ifstream iFile("test.txt");
    
    if (!iFile)
    {
    //error msg
    return -1;
    }
    
    iFile >> test1;
    
    iFile.close();
    
    Form *Form1 = new Form();
    
    Form1->SetParameter(test1); //put parameter into form
    
    Application::Run(Form1); //run app
    return 0;
    }
    Form1.h:

    Code:
    public __gc class Form1 : public System::Windows::Forms::Form
    {
    public:
    Form1()
    {
    InitializeComponent();
    }
    
    void SetParameter(int t){
    textBox1->Text = t;
    }
    
    protected:
    void Dispose(Boolean disposing)......
    .....
    .....
    .....
    
    Actually I dunno where should I put the SetParameter, and how to convert int "t" to __gc textbox text as shown in the method.(since compiling the method results the first error)

    Million thanks again.

    You are creating an object of Type Form Form *Form1 = new Form(); but giving it just a name as Form1 but your class name is Form1 public __gc class Form1 : public System::Windows::Forms::Form and so SetParameter is a member of Form1 class and not Form class and thats why the error.

    then, how could I change it in order to let the outside main see the SetParameter method and use it? thanks.
