will help you I am working with a library who has a struct defined as such: ,
I can get x fine using the above method but not a. why?

Porting C -> C++, having trouble with accessing struct within unnamed union

I wish did fix the issue. Looks like you've declared a class or struct bk somewhere earlier in your code. Also
code :
struct tt                       *tt;

How can i declare a variable of a struct which is in a union and this union is in another struct

it should still fix some issue The standard does not allow nested types in an anonymous union. Your code is not legal.
From the C++ Draft Standard N3337:

Accessing first field of struct in a union of structs

help you fix your problem The first element of a struct or union is guaranteed to have the same address-value as the struct´/union itself. Apparently it has not the same type!
For your usage, you do not need the cast and actually should avoid it:
code :
printf("%s", p->name);
union data {
    struct TYPEA typea;
    struct TYPEB typeb;
    struct TYPEC typec;
printf("%s", p->typea.name);
struct TypeA {
    int x,y;


struct data {
    char *name;
    union {
        struct TypeA;
        struct TypeB;
        struct TypeC;

C++ - Properly accessing nested struct in union

To fix the issue you can do I tried the above code on code blocks, and it works, but I am sure that this code is not safe to run every time. The reason of your problem is: your 2 function
code :
worker* getHourly()
    worker newWorker;
        return &newWorker;

worker* getSalaried() {
    worker newWorker;
     return &newWorker;
worker* getHourly()
    worker* newWorker;
     newWorker = new (worker)        
        return newWorker;

worker* getSalaried() {
    worker* newWorker;
     newWorker = new (worker);
     return &newWorker;
worker getHourly()
    worker newWorker;
        return newWorker;

worker getSalaried() {
    worker newWorker;
     return &newWorker;

will be helpful for those in need Can anyone please explain why the 1st method of accessing a nested struct element inside an union in a struct works and the 2nd does not? , Try the following:
