I am writing a program and when a certain button is pushed i want it to get the text from a text box and create a txt file and put that string in it. i tried using fstream but it wont work with a String^ type. so i tried converting the string to std::string type. that failed miserably for me. any help on this? how do i do this? i don't care if i convert or if there is a way to use the string^ type. i just need a way to get it done.
