let's say I declare a data type the following way:
typedef struct DataGroup
{
  int element1;
  char element2[20];
};

Now I would like to declare a type that consists of an array with DataGroup structs. Something like:

typedef struct TestArray
{
  DataGroup element3[10];
};

struct TestArray myTestData;

I have trouble though with the correct syntax. How can I access element1 and element2[] from within myTestData and assign a value to these elements? Please also let me know if there is an easier or better way to do what I describe above. Important is that I have an array of DataGroup.

Like this:
   myTestData.element3[0].element1 = 0;
   myTestData.element3[0].element2[0] = 0;
   myTestData.element3[1].element1 = 0;
   myTestData.element3[1].element2[3] = 0;

Hope That Helps,
