I am getting error c2100: illegal indirection whenever I try to compile the following line: *buffer[counter]->Attributes = i; Buffer is a CHAR_INFO array pointer, counter is the index, and i is an integer. Also, I know I am gonna get trouble out of the following line: *buffer[counter]->Char.AsciiChar = line; Do I need to use '->' or '.' between Char and AsciiChar? Also line is a string, will that cause problems?

I am getting error c2100: illegal indirection whenever I try to compile the following line:

*buffer[counter]->Attributes = i;

Buffer is a CHAR_INFO array pointer, counter is the index, and i is an integer.

buffer[counter].Attributes = i;

Depends on what type Char is.

Depends on what types line/AsciiChar are, and what you are going to do with the AsciiChar member. If you are using C++ and they are both std::string's, you should be ok.

buffer[counter]->Attributes = i
or
buffer[counter].Attributes = i

Next problem:

buffer[counter]->Char.AsciiChar = line
or
buffer[counter].Char.AsciiChar = line


Which one depends on how buffer is allocates

Use first if
CHAR_INFO* buffer[...];

Use second if
CHAR_INFO buffer[...];


Hope that helps :)

Edit: Didn't see that line is a string... Looking at what I think you mean then it most definately wont work because you would be assigning a char* to a char
