Description

A null-terminated string of wide characters, with no reference counting.

A WideString variable represents a sequence of wchar_t characters. The WideString C++ class is functionally equivalent to the Delphi WideString intrinsic type.

WideString is useful when working with COM (Microsoft Component Object Model). WideString variables are easily converted to or from BSTR strings.

Note: WideString is used by the Delphi desktop compilers, but is not supported by the Delphi mobile compilers. For more information, see Migrating Delphi Code to Mobile from Desktop.
