Only the first word of a string is being written to file?

Hi all,

What I am trying to do is to get a string which is being assigned to by the cin command, and write it to a file. Now this is only working slightly. As the title says, the whole string is not being written to the file....only the first word:


1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13
string Text;
How I am writing to the file: 

 ofstream Write_Test("Write_Test.txt");//Creating the file
	//Write_Test.open("Write_Test");	//Opening it for writing to, the ios::trunc at the end means it will open the file if it already exists, and overwrite any existing data with the new data.		
	Write_Test << Text;					//Write a message to the file.
	Write_Test.close();					//Close the stream, meaning the file will be saved.		
	cout << "Done!";

What I am using to assign the value 'Text' which is what I am writing to the text file:

	cout << "Write something: ";
		cin >> Text;



Could anyone help me please?

Thanks
you need to use the following code to accept spaces in strings:

Write_test << getline( userString , cin );
It wont let me use getline? It is coming up with the red line underneath it:

Write_Test << getline( Text , cin );
Ok the error has gone away now, but when i open the file; instead of seeing what I just typed in, i see this:

5E85C288

Do you know why this is happenng?
Are you sure you aren't doing something silly like the following?

Write_Test << &Text;
Don't do this:
 
    Write_Test << getline(cin, Text);


Instead, try this:
1
2
    getline(cin, Text);
    Write_Test << Text;
Hi,

Sorry for the late reply.

That does not work unfortunately. What ia happening now is that it is writing everything after the first word?
Can you please show the latest version of your code.
