I want to seed this variable in my shader file with an array out of my application:
in app:
Light lights[NUM_LIGHTS];

in effect file:
Light gLight[NUM_LIGHTS];


I know that to do so with just one struct would be like this:
in effect file:
Light gLight;

in app:
GetVariableByName("gLight");


But I'm not sure what the argument of GetVariableByName needs to be to do it with an array.

EDIT:

I guess I'm also sure how to be doing SetRawValue in tandem with GetVariableByName. This is what I have right now and it doesn't seem to work:
mFXLightVar->SetRawValue(&lights[0],0,sizeof(Light)*NUM_LIGHTS);
mFXLightVar = mFX->GetVariableByName("gLight");
