Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone knew the correct syntax for creating a vector of Objects and from there, accessing the data members of said objects.

Thanks

Are you talking about STL vectors? An STL vector is just like any other template class, so you can use whatever data type you want with it. Here's a little example program:
Code:
#include <iostream.h>
#include <vector.h>

int main()
{
        // Create a vector of integers
        vector<int> v(10);

        // Fill it up with stuff
        for(int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
                v[i] = i;

        // Display some data from the vector
        cout<<"Max size of vector: " <<v.max_size() <<endl;
        cout<<"Actual size of vector: " <<v.size() <<endl <<endl;

        // Traverse it with an iterator
        vector<int>::iterator iter = v.begin();
        while(iter != v.end())
        {
                // Access the element
                cout<< *iter++ <<" ";
        }

        cout<<endl;

        return 0;
}
Output of the program on my OS X machine:
Code:
bash-2.05a$ ./vector 
Max size of vector: 1073741823
Actual size of vector: 10

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 
bash-2.05a$ 
Since it's STL, all you need to do is change vector to vector and change the assignment loop.

Many thanks! How does the assignment method change when trying to create a vector of objects from within an instantiation of an object? for example a vector of employees instantiated within an employee database.

Do I need to utilise the push_back() function because I seem to be having difficulties in utilizing the standard array style subscript method?
