I have some vb code i want to convert to gambas and it uses this code

Private Type ID3V22HDR
frameName1 As String * 3
frameSize1 As Byte
frameSize2 As Byte
frameSize3 As Byte
End Type

what would be the best way to convert this to gambas?

Guessing without information about what a vb private type is and where and why you would use it , but there is a thing called a Struct in Gambas, maybe that is what you are looking for.

the most close are a struc.. i mean.. in the (poor) visual basic u define a
"type" but really that "type" must be instanciated/redeclared before use it

so then struc maybe its the shor.. but will act as a new class to use it, i
mean, event

Dim variable as new ID3V22HDR

Actually a type in VBA (old VB6 and MSOffice Basic) is not regarded as an object, it is more akin to a C Struc.

All you do to use it is "Dim myVar As UserType". You use New for object classes only, and Type is not a class or object.

The Private clause makes the user type definition accessible only in the form, module or class where it is defined, making the type unavsilable to others.
