Hi, I've been learning how to declare function pointers and I want to know how can I declare an array of function pointers, i.e.: typedef VOID (*TFunc)(WORD, WORD, LONG, LONG); TFunc Functions[12]; is it possible to do? thnx. Please lay off the caps in your topic titles, yelling won't get your questions answered any faster. Thanks. -fel Edited by - felisandria on February 21, 2002 10:33:47 AM

Yep, that''s possible.
Though I dunno why you''d want to make an array filled with the same function like that.


It doesn''t have to be the same function, you just need to ensure the functions have the same signature. An example of where it would be useful is in something resembling the observer design pattern, where a number of functions register their interest in being notified of callback events.
