Macro parameter list

I got a macro like this in my code.
#define DECLARE_SOMEWND STRUCTURE(style , nums, clrref, icon, tablenum,
name,
menuname)\
static SOMEWNDSTRUCT &GetSomeWndStru ct()\
{\
static SOMEWNDSTRUCT somestruct = {\
style, bits, clrref, icon, tablenum, name, menuname};\
return somestruct ;\
} And I want to be able to do something like this
Have a generic paremeter list...
GENERIC 1,2,3,4,5,6,7
GENERICNAME(nam e) 1,2,3,4,5,name, 7 Which then could be used like this.
DECLARE_SOMEWND STRUCTURE(GENER IC)
DECLARE_SOMEWND STRUCTURE(GENER ICNAME("Jimbo") )

Obviously this doesn't work - warning C4003: not enough actual
parameters for macro...So could anybody explain how something like this
is done?

Here's an example of how to do it (with some trivial test code; this
has been tested):

#define PRINT3D(a,b,c) do {printf("%d%d%d \n",a,b,c);} while(0)
#define MACROCALL(x,y) x(y)
#define P3DARGS 1,2,3

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
MACROCALL(PRINT 3D,P3DARGS);
return 0;
}

In many preprocessor problems, an extra level of macro expansion is all
that is needed. This shouldn't be too hard to adapt to your code.

How about

#define DECLARE_NAMED(n ame) DECLARE_SOMEWND STRUCTURE(1,2,3 ,4,5,name,7)
#define DECLARE_DEFAULT DECLARE_NAMED( 6 )

But I guess this macro evilness is just a symptom of something more
sinister.

Technically you're trying to invent default macro arguments in order to
solve some problem. It's difficult to see what that problem is. But
let's say (correct me if I'm wrong) that the problem is

* How to provide default values for most values in a collection.

And one way to do that is to copy a default collection and simply change
the value or values that should not default, e.g.

ValueCollection defaultValues() { ... }

ValueCollection valuesWithName( std::string const& aName )
{
ValueCollection result = defaultValues() ;
result.name = aName;
return result;
}

Or it could be an override of a virtual function, like

ValueCollection Base::values() const { ... }

std::string Derived::name() const { return "abra kadabra"; }

ValueCollection Derived::values () const
{
ValueCollection result = Base::values();
result.name = name();
return result;
}

You could even go so far as to use one virtual function per value.

Hi macro experts, in a variadic macro, i.e. in a macro with a variable parameter list, is there any way to access single parameters of the list? __VA_ARGS__ only expands to the whole list. The reason why I need this: I want a fixed Index->Value mapping that should be part of a compile time API. The straight forward way to do this would be an array, e.g.: const int Mapper = {27, 225, 815, 4711, ..};
