I have structure:
 struct CUSTOMVERTEX { FLOAT x, y, z, rhw; DWORD color; };
 const int myarraysize=3;
 CUSTOMVERTEX new_Vertices[myarraysize];

I trying this:
 new_Vertices[0].x = 60.0f;
 new_Vertices[0].y = 60.0f;
 new_Vertices[0].z = 0.5f;
 new_Vertices[0].rhw = 1.0f;
 new_Vertices[0].color = 0xffff0000;
Works fine, but I don't want it like this...

I trying this:
 new_Vertices[0] =  {60.0f,  60.0f, 0.5f, 1.0f, 0xffff0000};
But it generates syntax errors. Why?

Sorry for my English.
Tnx.

This syntax is similar to an INITIALIZER and is only legal in a DECLARATION, not as an ASSIGNMENT.

You could try:

CUSTOMVERTEX new_Vertices[myarraysize] = {60.0f,  60.0f, 0.5f, 1.0f, 0xffff0000};

Try

CUSTOMVERTEX v =  {60.0f,  60.0f, 0.5f, 1.0f, 0xffff0000};

new_Vertices[0] = v;

If you want to initialize the entire array, you can try the following:

const int myarraysize=3;
CUSTOMVERTEX new_Vertices[myarraysize] = {
{60.0f,  63.0f, 0.5f, 1.0f, 0xffff0000},
{61.0f,  64.0f, 0.5f, 1.0f, 0xffff0000},
{62.0f,  65.0f, 0.5f, 1.0f, 0xffff0000}
};
