Default Enum string return just first letter

pawn Code:
enum UserInfoEnum
new UserInfo[MAX_PLAYERS][UserInfoEnum];
When i want return the word stored on enum string, just return first letter.
for example:
pawn Code:
public OnPlayerConnect(playerid)
    new string[46];
    UserInfo[playerid][Name] = "Test";
    format(string, sizeof string, "Your name is: %s", UserInfo[playerid][Name]);
    SendClientMessage(playerid, -1, string);
    //[out put] Your name is: T
    return 1

How to fix it?

Default Re: Enum string return just first letter

Because you're saving [Name] just like you would save an integer and it's not correct.

The correct way to parse a string is using strcpy:

pawn Code:
#define strcpy(%0,%1,%2) strcat((%0[0] = '\0', %0), %1, %2)

Then in your command:

pawn Code:
strcpy(UserInfo[playerid][Name], "Test", 5);

Where 5 is the lenght of the string.

Since seems you're saving the player name, i'd suggest you to use MAX_PLAYER_NAME lenght. (Which is the same as 24 but i do prefer the first one).
