    Structure..

    I have this array

    Code:
    int array[3][4] =    
        {{1,2,3},
         {4,5,6},
         {7,8,9},
         {10,11,12}};
    
    And and structure like this:
    
    struct database
    {
      int x_pos;
      int y_pos;
      int type_;
      int money;
      int credit;
    };
    If I want to access item 1,2 in the array I do like this:
    number_ = array[1] [2]

    But since the array only can have 1 information item in it I have an problem.

    I want an structure that I can access in an similar way as the array.

    So, basically I want an [3] [4] array of the structure.

    And I have no idea on how to do this, can you help me?

    So when I for example want the information at location [1] [2] in the structure-array I could get the type_, money, credit etc from it.

    database my_database[3][4];

    Here's an example:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    
    struct database
    {
    	int number;
    	double test;
    };
    
    int main()
    {
    
    	database my_database[3][4]; //Declare an array of database structs
    	my_database[0][0].number = 10;
    	my_database[0][0].test = 45.32;
    
    	cout<<my_database[0][0].number<<endl;
    
    	return 0;
    }
