I'm going through a c++ header file converting data types and I am stuck on this one.. Anybody know how to translate this to Delphi?

typedef union RhtFeatureValue_u
{
    ULONG                   Integer;         // integer values (char, short, int, long)
    ULONG                   Enumeration;     // enumerated types
    ULONG                   BitMap;          // bit-mapped values

    UCHAR                   Reserved[16];    // Maximum of 128 bits.
} RHT_FEATURE_VALUE_U, *PRHT_FEATURE_VALUE_U;

This should be it (not 100% sure about RHT_FEATURE_VALUE_U)

PRhtFeatureValue = ^TRhtFeatureValue;
TRhtFeatureValue = record
 int: ULONG;
 Enumeration: ULONG;
 Bitmap: ULONG;
 Reserved: array [0..15] of char; // or string[16];
end;

Hope this helps,

Since it's a union type (and not a struct), shouldn't is look something like:

TRhtFeatureValue = record
  case integer of....

Sorry, my mistake. rbohac gets the points as he correctly stated that the case integer of is needed. See for example:

Kind regards,

  RHT_FEATURE_VALUE_U = record
    case Integer of
      0: _Integer:Cardinal;
      1: _Enumeration:Cardinal;
      2: _BitMap:Cardinal;
      3: _Reserved: array [0..15] of Char;
  end;
