Seeed Studio TouchShield v2.0

I am using the Seeed Studio TouchShield v2.0 (touchscreen LCD display) which I purchased from One of the libraries for this device has a function with the following structure.

// Draws the text string "XYZ" starting at position (25,200) in size 2 cyan font.

I would like to be able to replace the string "XYZ" with a string variable like this.

String someText;
someText = "ABC";

When I tried this, the compiler yelled at me. Anyone see how I can do this?

Anyone see how I can do this?

Don't use Strings. Use strings:

char someText[] = "Strings piss away resources";


That worked! Thank you for your assistance with this issue.
