C Conversion

I am going through and doing a .h to delphi conversion so I an use a 3rd party dll.

I'm trying to figure out how to properly convert the following struct. The problem is that there is a data field after the union.. I'm not exactly sure how to do this in Delphi.

typedef struct
      ACSEventHeader_t      eventHeader;
            ACSUnsolicitedEvent            acsUnsolicited;
            ACSConfirmationEvent      acsConfirmation;
            CSTARequestEvent            cstaRequest;
            CSTAUnsolicitedEvent      cstaUnsolicited;
            CSTAConfirmationEvent      cstaConfirmation;
            CSTAEventReport                  cstaEventReport;
      } event;
      char      heap[CSTA_MAX_HEAP];
} CSTAEvent_t;

What I have so far:

type CSTAEvent_t = record
  eventHeader : ACSEventHeader_t;
  case Integer of
    0 : (acsUnsolicited: ACSUnsolicitedEvent);
    1 : (acsConfirmation: ACSConfirmationEvent);
    2 : (cstaRequest: CSTARequestEvent);
    3 : (cstaUnsolicited: CSTAUnsolicitedEvent);
    4 : (cstaConfirmation: CSTAConfirmationEvent);
    5 : (cstaEventReport: CSTAEventReport);

  //How do I add heap : array[1..CSTA_MAX_HEAP] of char;

Just make the union its own record structure

  CSTAEvent_t       =   record
     eventHeader:   ACSEventHeader_t;
     event: record case Integer of
        0  : (acsUnsolicited:   ACSUnsolicitedEvent);
        1  : (acsConfirmation:  ACSConfirmationEvent);
        2  : (cstaRequest:      CSTARequestEvent);
        3  : (cstaUnsolicited:  CSTAUnsolicitedEvent);
        4  : (cstaConfirmation: CSTAConfirmationEvent);
        5  : (cstaEventReport:  CSTAEventReport);
     heap:          Array [0..Pred(CSTA_MAX_HEAP)] of Char;
