# Structure

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}
};

Often, when implementing a feature, you won't know how certain events should be handled at the point where they occur and you'd rather defer to the user of your function or class. For example, a XML parser will extract a tag from the source code, wh…
