Okay I've been struggling with this for awhile now...I'm making a graphics enhanced number guessing game. It displays the numbers 0 through 9, and I want to have it put an X over the number you press. So I have a font that displays the numbers, and an identical font that is semi-transparent so you can see what number the X covers. here's my code:
  loop=0;
  while(loop==0)
  {
    SDL_Event event2;
    keys = SDL_GetKeyState(NULL);
    while ( SDL_PollEvent(&event2) )
    {
      if ( event2.type == SDL_QUIT )  { done = 1; loop=1;}
      if ( event2.type == SDL_KEYDOWN )
      {
        if ( event2.key.keysym.sym == SDLK_ESCAPE ) { done = 1; loop=1;}
        if ( keys[SDLK_0] && trueNumList[0] != 'X') { trueNumList[0] = 'X'; xList[0] = 'X';}
        if ( keys[SDLK_1] && trueNumList[1] != 'X') { trueNumList[1] = 'X'; xList[3] = 'X';}
        if ( keys[SDLK_2] && trueNumList[2] != 'X') { trueNumList[2] = 'X'; xList[6] = 'X';}
        if ( keys[SDLK_3] && trueNumList[3] != 'X') { trueNumList[3] = 'X'; xList[9] = 'X';}
        if ( keys[SDLK_4] && trueNumList[4] != 'X') { trueNumList[4] = 'X'; xList[12] = 'X';}
        if ( keys[SDLK_5] && trueNumList[5] != 'X') { trueNumList[5] = 'X'; xList[15] = 'X';}
        if ( keys[SDLK_6] && trueNumList[6] != 'X') { trueNumList[6] = 'X'; xList[18] = 'X';}
        if ( keys[SDLK_7] && trueNumList[7] != 'X') { trueNumList[7] = 'X'; xList[21] = 'X';}
        if ( keys[SDLK_8] && trueNumList[8] != 'X') { trueNumList[8] = 'X'; xList[24] = 'X';}
        if ( keys[SDLK_9] && trueNumList[9] != 'X') { trueNumList[9] = 'X'; xList[27] = 'X';}
        if ( keys[SDLK_RETURN] ) { loop = 1;}
      }
    }
    drawString(screen,xFont,400-stringWidth(numFont,numList)/2,100,xList); 
    SDL_Flip(screen); 
  }  

A couple of things to mention: xList is a char* array, and trueNumList is a char array. I think the problem is where I try to replace xList[whatever]. The prog crashes when I press any digit. Is that because I am somehow trying to change the address to 'X' instead of the value? I tried xList[0] = "X" and that didn't work either.

I couldn't find the error , but why do you use if in the event structure ?

Shouldn't the switch() - case style be more efficient and easier to use ?

For example


while (SDL_PollEvent(&event2) )
{
switch( event2.type )
{
case SDL_QUIT:
//do some stuff when quit
break;

case SDL_KEYDOWN:
//here are keys pressed - the same structure

break;

}
}

Show us the code where you define trueNumList and xList. It's possible that you're not creating your array properly and your assignment attempt is going out of bounds.
