djbusychildCommented:
same thing

just use char* instead of int
and malloc character array

#include <stdio.h>

typedef struct mystruct {
    char* i;
} mystruct_st;


void func(mystruct_st* user_struct, int len)
{
    int i;
    for (i = 0;i<len;i++) {
         printf("struct %d = %d\n",i,user_struct[i].i);
    }
}

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
    int i;
    mystruct_st struct_arr[5];
   
    for (i = 0;i<5;i++) {
         struct_arr[i].i = (*char)malloc(256);
    }

    func(struct_arr,5);

    return 0;
}

oops... I didn't put anything into the buffer. =)

right now the program will most probably crash depending on what garbage is in the buffer.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

typedef struct mystruct {
   char* i;
} mystruct_st;


void func(mystruct_st* user_struct, int len)
{
   int i;
   for (i = 0;i<len;i++) {
        printf("struct %d = %s\n",i,user_struct[i].i);
   }
}


int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
   int i;
   mystruct_st struct_arr[5];
   
   for (i = 0;i<5;i++) {
        struct_arr[i].i = (char*)malloc(256);
        strcpy(struct_arr[i].i,"hello world");
   }

   func(struct_arr,5);

   return 0;
}
