How to Initialize arrays at declaration time

Hi. Hopefully this is a simple question. I simply want to declare an array of structures and fill it with constant values.

For example:

Public Type MYTYPE
  myint as integer
  mystr as string
end type

Public MyTypes(10) as MYTYPE

I know I could assign the values in a routine here, but is there some way I can just assign them at declaration time. I know I can do it in C, what about VB?

Any help is appreciated?

Thanks.

I new I wasn't being clear, that's why I'm having trouble. The answer I'm hoping for is something like:

Public MyTypes(10) as MYTYPE = { 1, "x", 2, "y", ... }

or something like that I would hope. The key is initializing the values or setting them as constants.

Not possible with VB 6, but in VB.net
Use for load to initialize array

Dim arr
arr = Split( "a","b","c")
