digitalmars.D - trouble with struct values

I have some code that is greatly minimized to the one below (which won't 
compile or run, btw). The trouble is that the writefln call shows that 
wRepeatCount has a value greater than 0 at that point. When it comes to 
foo, it has been reset to 0. Do anyone have an idea what is happening? 
Is it a memory allocation issue? Scoping issue? Thread problem (In the 
real application, bar is part of the run function pointer)? I don't 
write to ip at no point in my application between getting the value and 
using it, still they change. I am aware that I'm not very experienced 
using structs, especially this type, so I find it likely that it is 
something I do and not a bug elsewhere. The app/library only depend on 
the Win32 API and Phobos. Suggestions is what I'm after here.

int bar()
{
   HANDLE hConIn;
   INPUT_RECORD ip;
   DWORD read;

   ReadConsoleInputW(hConIn, ip, 1, &read);
   writefln(ip.Event.KeyEvent.wRepeatCount);
   return foo(ip);
}

int foo(INPUT_RECORD ip)
{
   if (ip.EventType == KEY_EVENT) {
     return ip.Event.KeyEvent.wRepeatCount;
   }
   return 0;
}

Got a clue. What kind of type is INPUT_RECORD? Is it a struct or a class, how is it build up? Also, should: writefln(ip.Event.KeyEvent.wRepeatCount); not be: writefln("%s", ip.Event.KeyEvent.wRepeatCount); Since it now just prints rubbish on the console. Regards, Sjoerd

try declaring int foo(inout INPUT_RECORD ip) just to see if there is a problem passing structs to functions by value.

That worked! I was thinking about trying that, but didn't as the original C code passed it by value. Lars Ivar Igesund
