I'm not really sure what you mean (or in which language), but if you mean how the constructors are called in a statement like this(asumming C++):
T a[10];
Then T's constructor is called ten times.

The default constructor will be used.

If there is no default constructor then you'll have to do something like

class MyClass
{
public:
MyClass(int value);
};

MyClass array[3] = {MyClass(4), MyClass(21), MyClass(7)};

In C++, they are called starting from the the element with all indices equal to 0, successively calling the constructors for all elements in row-major order. If an exception is thrown, any elements which were already constructed are then destructed in the reverse order.
