For quick loading of string resources:
#define _S(id) (CString(LPCTSTR(id)))
And use it like this:
MessageBox ( hwnd, _S(IDS_TITLE), _S(IDS_MESSAGE), MB_OK );
This constructor trick is actually documented, although I haven't seen it used too often. Note that this macro is the release version; the debug version is a real function that checks whether the LoadString() succeeds.
Dunder-Mifflin, this is Pam.
