Hi,
   As i am new to VB .NET (I am used to c/c++ environment) i have a quick question on data structures.
Somehow i started off with VB .NET and now i have to import an external dll into my VB application and also read data off of that dll's output buffer.
The dll writes an integer to the buffer every time and i need to read it based on some condition.

If the dll returns each of the members of this data structure,  i need to find the following
corresponding functionality in VB .NEt

if(out.value1 == 1)
{
//do this
buffer1 = out.value2;
buffer2 = out.value3;
//etc
}
else if(out.value1 == 2)
{
//do this
//nothing here
}


===============
struct
{
int value1;
int value2;
int value3;
} out;

===============

Please help me as soon as possible,
thanks,
Sang

Hi sanggeek:
I fear you have asked your question in the wrong area.
Your code looks like C# not Visual Basic.
I suggest you ask at Community Support to move the question to either the .NET or the C# areas

struct
{
int value1;
int value2;
int value3;
} out;

Try:

Type
    value1 as Integer
    value2 as Integer
    value3 as integer
End Type

Correction:

Type outType
    value1 as Integer
    value2 as Integer
    value3 as integer
End Type

Then your code:

Dim out as New outType
If out.value1 = 1 then
    buffer1 = out.value2
    buffer2 = out.value3
    'etc
ElseIf out.value1 = 2 then
    'do this
    'nothing here
End If

StructDeclaration ::=
[ Attributes ] [ StructModifier+ ] Structure Identifier LineTerminator
   [ TypeImplementsClause+ ]
   [ StructMemberDeclaration+ ]
   End Structure LineTerminator

StructureModifier ::= AccessModifier | Shadows


so ...


public structure foo
    public value1 as integer
    public value2 as integer
    public value3 as integer
end structure
