Using Data Structures as I would an array

Hello,
     I have written a .dll and have been using arrays for a project I've been working on for a while now, though I've recently discovered how to create my own data structure. I like that fact that I can have a description of sorts as opposed to having a huge list of numbers/text, but I need to be able to loop through the datastructure to get all of the informatoin out without having to designate each item as my current setup my arrays are very large and this would take a lot of time. My goal is to be able to somehow get these into an indexable array if possible to throw them in a loop to dump all data as below:

Public Structure Test
     Public WidgetName as String
     Public WidgetColor as String
     Public WidgetWeight as Integer
End Structure

Test.WidgetName = Widget1
Test.WidgetColor = Green
Test.WidgetWeight = 15

Dim Counter1 as Integer = -1
Dim DataString as String
Do
     Counter1 = Counter1 + 1
     DataString = DataString & "," & Test(Counter1)
Loop until Counter1 = DataString.Length - 1

Is there any way to do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
