How do you manually call constructors in C++?

e.g. if you have allocated an array of class instances but weren't allowed to use new(), and the classes have stuff in the constructor which is important, but you can't move it into an .Init() function because they are other classes within the private: data of the class.
(It's great working with other peoples code isn't it!)


I tried doing
for (i=0;i.MyClass();

But no luck:
"error C2274: 'function-style cast' : illegal as right side of '.' operator"


Weirdly:
for (i=0;i.~MyClass();
works!


You learn something old everyday...
