Can somebody please take a look at this. When I run it, and I try to get sizeof(WorldData) I get 4 as a result. On the other hand dwNumTriangles*sizeof(TRIANGLE) seems to be evaluating to the correct answer.
	float x, y, z;
	float tu, tv;


typedef struct tagTRIANGLE
	CUSTOMVERTEX points[3];

TRIANGLE * WorldData = NULL;
DWORD dwNumTriangles = 36;

WorldData = (TRIANGLE*)malloc(dwNumTriangles*sizeof(TRIANGLE));  
If anybody has any idea why it''s not giving me the correct answer, it would be appreciated if you could tell me why. Thanks in advance

If that''s the case, then how would I go about finding the size in bytes of the entire WorldData array?
