digitalmars.D - win32 and struct aligment

but when I have

NMPGSCROLL *s=(cast(NMPGSCROLL*)lParam);

s.iScroll is messed up no matter if align is 1 and  s.alignof says it is 4. Also
if I have like that

NMPGSCROLL s=*(cast(NMPGSCROLL*)lParam);

s.alignof is 1 but values are still messed up.

Any suggestions what may be wrong?

32 bit machines), so it makes sense that NMPGSCROLL *s has alignof 4, also it makes sense that if lParam is actually a pointer then its lowest 2 bits will be zero - ie, it is also aligned on 4 byte boundrys. My only thoughts are 1) What is the packing/alignment of RECT & does the align actually effect the packing of rcParent 2) do the s.iScroll.offsetof, etc, numbers add up? Brad

http://digitalmars.com/d/struct.html What I was trying to say before - you have a type of RECT in your struct. I think that RECT may be another structure. I was trying to ask you to check that the RECT structure wasn't being padded out. For example, assume that RECT is align 4, and is struct RECT { char x,y; } There will be 2 bytes of padding after x & y. Now, when you embed RECT inside of your other struct, does the align(1) directive also remove the padding from RECT? I don't know, but I would hope that it does. Brad

If you want the *members* to be aligned a certain way, rather than the struct itself, put the align directive inside the struct: struct NMPGSCROLL { align(1): NMHDR hdr; WORD fwKeys; RECT rcParent; int iDir; int iXpos; int iYpos; int iScroll; }

Good one but it still works the same (wrong) way... Can't I realign it myself? something like char[4] a=cast(char[4])s.iScroll and then change bytes positions? I don't have any idea what this aligment thing is and what is it's use except it is ruining my code :)

It works (i.e. produces the same result) as the C compiler's alignment directives on the same struct.

then that structure won't be tightly packed I don't think - in which case, telling D to pack the structure may be a bit broken :) Brad

 I don't have any idea what this aligment thing is and what is it's use

 is ruining my code :)

Why are you using it? Exactly what are you trying to achieve?

I am not using it because it doesn't work or at least I don't know how to make it work, but I need it because I need a Pager Control and definition of NMPGSCROLL, or whatever it was, in the ms headers have #include <pshpack1.h> and #include <poppack.h> around it, which says #pragma(pack,1), which I believe, should be equivalent of D's align(1). This is why. But all numbers are messed up! damn.
