    Structure with string

    I am trying to create a constant structure containing string, which does not seems possible.
    Hopefully someone can help me out by giving me some pointer.

    Here is my code
    Code:
    Constant struct CData{
    	char D1[] = "Data1";
    	char D2[] = "Data2";
    	char D3[] = "Data3";
    };
    Many Thanks!

    A structure is a blue print, think of it as a 'type', types can't hold data (ie, int != some random number, it's a type).
    Code:
    struct CData
    {
        char d1[16], d2[16], d3[16];
    };
    
    struct CData thingy = {"Data1", "Data2", "Data3"};
    Would work.

    In this case there will never be a constant structure?

    as in we call only do it as

    const struct Data Somedata;
