Hello Experts,

I have a fixed length string I would like to put into an array

so for example:

 Dim hello(0) As New VB6.FixedLengthString(15)
 Dim hello(1) As New VB6.FixedLengthString(30)
 Dim hello(2) As New VB6.FixedLengthString(19)

Each string in the array will differ in fixed length...

However visual basic doesn't allow arrays when using fixedlength strings.

Is there any simple way around this?

Thanks Experts.

I'm not sure why you're using old school FixedLengthStrings (hopefully it's for intefacing with an old VB6 object!), but here's how you can do it in .NET:

        Dim hello(3) As VB6.FixedLengthString

        hello(0) = New VB6.FixedLengthString(15)
        hello(1) = New VB6.FixedLengthString(30)
        hello(2) = New VB6.FixedLengthString(19)
