I see what you mean and I changed the code BUT still my main problem is that
I want to know how to fill values array. I remind you that d_type contains
attributes of another composite type p_type.
I need a solution to that because I need to use it in other parts of the

Datum d_swap(PG_FUNCTION_ARGS) {
    HeapTupleHeader t = PG_GETARG_HEAPTUPLEHEADER(0);
    HeapTupleHeader i;
    HeapTupleHeader e;
    bool isnull;

    TupleDesc tupdesc;
    Datum values[3];
    HeapTuple tuple;

    i = DatumGetHeapTupleHeader(GetAttributeByName(t, "i", &isnull));
    e = DatumGetHeapTupleHeader(GetAttributeByName(t, "e", &isnull));

    if (get_call_result_type(fcinfo, NULL, &tupdesc) != TYPEFUNC_COMPOSITE)
        ereport(ERROR, (errcode(ERRCODE_FEATURE_NOT_SUPPORTED),
errmsg("function returning record called in context that cannot accept type


//I need to get this working
    *values[0] = e;*
*    values[1] = i;*
*    values[2] = GetAttributeByName(t, "id", &isnull);*

    tuple = heap_form_tuple(tupdesc, values, &isnull);
