MySQL++ doesn't have special support for .NET data types, including the
one used for text in UI controls, System::String. It wouldn't be
terribly difficult to do add such support, but it would create a bit of
an ifdef mess to turn it off for the majority of other builds where .NET
So, you need to convert System::String to something Query can ingest
through its stream interface, and which MySQL will accept on the back
end. Yes, there are two conversions here, not just one: .NET data type
to plain old C data type, and UCS-2 to UTF-8 Unicode format conversion.
ToUTF8(), in examples/vstudio/wforms/MainForm.h, does both of these.
