    Structure help

    Why doesn't my structure work, I did the same thing as the tutorial on this site!

    struct ship
    {
    int x_pos;
    int y_pos;
    };

    ship player;
    player.x_pos = 256;
    player.y_pos = 256;

    Hi,

    I cant see anything wrong with that code all i can think is that you have it in the wrong place: here is a complete working example:


    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    
    struct ship 
    { 
    int x_pos; 
    int y_pos; 
    }; 
    
    
    int main()
    {
    
    ship player; 
    player.x_pos = 256; 
    player.y_pos = 256;
    
    
    return 0;
    }
    That compiles fine in Visual C++ 6.

    Hope that helps

    I couldn add variables inside a header file.
    I moved it outside the header file into a cpp file and now it works.
    I should have looked a t my sig more

    > player.x_pos = 256;
    This line has to be inside a function - there is no problem with the rest of your original post being in a .h file.
