    2d array problem

    Hi, I am new to Visual C++.

    I have a 2d array in my function.
    char array[MAX][MAX];

    I then fill in the contents of the array, say, like this:
    array[0][0]='a';
    array[0][1]='b';
    array[0][2]='\0';

    Now when I run the debugger and want to view the contents of the 2D array,
    I don't see them.
    If I type this in my watch window:
    array[0]
    it says "error: index 0 out of bounds for pointer/array 'array' "
    same error comes up if I type something like this in my watch window:
    array[0],4

    Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? I really need to be able to view contents of my 2d array!

    Thanks for any ideas.

    ok, lets start with the fact that this is not visual... it maybe the compiler, but it's not win api or anything like it.
    your code is a simple ansi standart c/c++, so the question is not really part of this board.

    but anyway, your code is fine, and should compile and give you the right result.
    I don't really use ms visual, so I can't really help you with the "watch", but there is a much simple way to view the array:

    printf("%s", array[0]);



    I hope that helps.
