I'm converting some VB 6 code to VB .NET. What is the .NET equivalent of this: Public Type myHeader Signature As String * 4 End Type I had this: Public Structure myHeader Public Signature As String End Structure But how do I make it so that the string is only 4 characters long like the VB 6 example?

According to MSDN you can swap out VB6.FixedLengthString(n) in place of As String * n. However, fixed-length strings can create problems, as discussed in the linked article; you might consider using a Byte (or Char, for Unicode awareness) array instead, especially if you need interoperability with other languages.
