Juat use

HANDLE array1[42];

or

HWND array2[42];

Jandles are opaque data structures that pretend to be "complex", but in fact they aren't. Basically, they represent an index into an internal table that windows uses to store more information.

No, in that case, you'd use

vector<HWND> array2;

or

vector<HANDLE> array1;

Then yozu can use 'array1.size();' to find out about the size.

Not if array is defined like jkr showed. You might want to use a vector instead.
