Another method to initialize struct members is to declare a variable and then assign each member with its corresponding value separately. You should always mind the length of the array shall not be less than the string being stored. Use Initializer List Style Notation to Initialize a Struct in C struct is probably the most important keyword for building complex data structures in C.

Constant variables must be declared together with an initializer. If they are scalar types they cause a compiler error, and if they are class types that have a default constructor they cause a warning:. Static variables that are declared with no initializer are initialized to 0 implicitly converted to the type.
For more information about initialization of global static objects, see main function and command-line arguments. Copy initialization is the initialization of one object using a different object. It occurs in the following cases:. See Aggregate initialization for examples. In some cases, if the copy constructor of the class is deleted or inaccessible, copy initialization causes a compiler error.
Direct initialization is initialization using non-empty braces or parentheses. Unlike copy initialization, it can invoke explicit constructors. List initialization occurs when a variable is initialized using a braced initializer list. Braced initializer lists can be used in the following cases:.
Aggregate initialization is a form of list initialization for arrays or class types often structs or unions that have:. Aggregate initializers consist of a braced initialization list, with or without an equals sign, as in the following example:. Array members that are declared but not explicitly initialized during aggregate initialization are zero-initialized, as in myArr3 above. If a union does not have a constructor, you can initialize it with a single value or with another instance of a union.
The value is used to initialize the first non-static field. This is different from struct initialization, in which the first value in the initializer is used to initialize the first field, the second to initialize the second field, and so on. Compare the initialization of unions and structs in the following example:. Aggregate types can contain other aggregate types, for example arrays of arrays, arrays of structs, and so on. These types are initialized by using nested sets of braces, for example:.
Variables of reference type must be initialized with an object of the type from which the reference type is derived, or with an object of a type that can be converted to the type from which the reference type is derived. For example:. The only way to initialize a reference with a temporary object is to initialize a constant temporary object. Once initialized, a reference-type variable always points to the same object; it cannot be modified to point to another object.
Although the syntax can be the same, initialization of reference-type variables and assignment to reference-type variables are semantically different. In the preceding example, the assignments that change iVar and lVar look similar to the initializations, but have different effects. The initialization specifies the object to which the reference-type variable points; the assignment assigns to the referred-to object through the reference.
Because both passing an argument of reference type to a function and returning a value of reference type from a function are initializations, the formal arguments to a function are initialized correctly, as are the references returned. Declaration of a variable explicitly specified as extern. When initializing a reference-type variable, the compiler uses the decision graph shown in the following figure to select between creating a reference to an object or creating a temporary object to which the reference points.
Decision graph for initialization of reference types. They cannot, however, be initialized with const objects of that type. They cannot, however, be initialized with volatile objects of that type.
Interesting that the accepted and heavily upvoted answer doesn't actually answer the question, even as originally posted. Designated initializers don't address the OP's problem, which is to split the declaration from the initialization. For pre C, the only real solution is to assign to each member; for C99 and later, a compound literal, as in CesarB's answer, is the solution.
Of course an actual initializer, with or without designators, would be even better, but apparently the OP was saddled with a really bad coding standard. For example, "gcc -ansi" still enforces the standard.
Since it's ISO that published the , , and standards, it's best to avoid the term "ANSI C", and to refer to the date of the standard if there's any possibility of confusion. Show 1 more comment.

Geremia you have to first define the struct in both cases, but with designated initializers, you make the code more readable, and more resilient to errors, in case of changes in the struct. This is a little tricky. Many times some successful I have tried to use designated initializers.
However, it only has now become clear thanks to your and philant's example that there must exist a cast if the initializer is not used at the time of object creation. However, I have now also learned that if initializers are used at a time other than object creation as in your example then it is referred to as a compound literal , not strictly a designated initializer. Add a comment. From The GNU Guide : Standard C90 requires the elements of an initializer to appear in a fixed order, the same as the order of the elements in the array or structure being initialized.
In ISO C99 you can give the elements in random order, specifying the array indices or structure field names they apply to, and GNU C allows this as an extension in C90 mode as well Examples 1.

Is it possible to use variables in the initialization? Cyan It is for objects with automatic storage duration. See 6. For global objects is pretty much restricted to literals. You can't even use other global objects, even if they're const. So the only difference with C 99 is that you can't specify the designations?
I had a local one and in one case DST was on, in another it wasn't, not due to anything I did. You've almost got it Kieveli Kieveli Also I'm bound to coding rules that won't allow me to do declaration and initialization at once, so I have to split it up and initialize every single subelement.
Initialization can only happen at the point of declaration. That is what it means to 'initialize'. You have coding rules that are deliberately bad? Perhaps you should introduce the guy who wrote them to "Resource Acquisition Is Initialization" en. Trust me, I really, really, can't change a bit of this rules at this point. It feels horrible to code it. And there are a lot of other rules right out of the 70s, like static code headers with management information like Revision number.
Changes for every release, even if the source didn't change Note that paragraph 9 of the same section states that: Except where explicitly stated otherwise, for the purposes of this subclause unnamed members of objects of structure and union type do not participate in initialization. The standard later says: "If there are fewer initializers in a brace-enclosed list than there are elements or members of an aggregate, or fewer characters in a string literal used to initialize an array of known size than there are elements in the array,the remainder of the aggregate shall be initialized implicitly the same as objects that have static storage duration.

I guess my point was declaring the struct with values already in it vs. That principle applies whether it's one struct or an array of them.

Immediately after the object creation, we are bound to assign the values to the class variable if you want to implement object initialization in C.
It is not mandatory to pass or assign values to all the variables to the object initialization; it depends upon the requirement. We have given force here because we are not using any constructor here to assign them the values. Object initialization also reduces the lines of code that is required to initialize the variable. Also, we do not require to create the default and parameterized constructor for this. It also makes our code more readable and less in the number of lines.
After this, we can assign any type of variable to it. Whether it is a string, number, or anything. Now we will see one sample example for beginners to understand its internal working and implementation in a real scenario see below;. After that, we can either store them in db or simply print them using a console log. Trying to show employee data using object initializer in C. This is a sample example for beginner to understand its implementation.
We can create any number of objects we want using object initializer and store data. WriteLine "Demo to show object initializer in C!! WriteLine "Prinitg the values from the object " ; System. EmployeeId ; System. Employeecity ; System. Employeesalary ; System.
Employeename ; System. Employeeaddress ; System. By using object initialization, we can simply assign value to a variable without using constructors in C. We can assign them value while creating the object only. This makes the line of code less more readable or understandable. This is a guide to the C object initializer.
Here we discuss How to initialize an object in C along with the example and output.
A declaration of an object may provide its initial value through the process known as initialization. where designator-list is a list of. Initialization of a variable provides its initial value at the time of construction. The initial value may be provided in the initializer. Initialization of a variable is of two types: ; Method 1 (Declaring the variable and then initializing it) int a; a = 5; ; Method 2 (Declaring and.
