    Dual Scripted Array to hold chars

    char AdapterList[10][1024]

    How do i write chars into this array..

    so later i can
    easily reference them via
    just there array script later?

    eg.below

    While (i <=10)
    {
    printf("%d%,AdapterList[i]);
    i++;
    }

    and this should print the character stored at this subscript
    until it reaches the null character

    You can assign them in numerous ways. If you're doing one at a time, you just:

    array[x][y] = some_char;

    If you're using each "row" as a string, you could use strncpy. Since you require non-char types (unicode) you'll have to probably assign them manually, and you'll want an array of integers probably.

    To display a string, you don't use %d. You use %s.

    Search the board for some of the newbie posts on how to use multidimensional arrays to get you started.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
