Dll Import Question

P: n/a
Hi, am calling a C DLL from a CSharp app. The function I'm calling
takes a pointer to a structure with two fixed length embedded Unicode
strings. The problem is that the only way that seems to work so far
is to pretend my arrays of Unicode characters are Int16's.

Is there a better way do this? If not, what is the easiest way to
get my arrays of Int16's into a String?

Thanks very much,
Jenny C.

typedef struct
int propertyID;
TCHAR name[64]; // Unicode String
TCHAR displayText[64]; // Unicode String
int attribs;
int listID;
int elementType;
int elementCount;
int byteCount;
Int64 limitLo;
Int64 limitHi;
int units;
} JSR_Info ;

C++ call:

int JSR_GetInfo( int handle, int id, JSR_Info *pInfo);

[ StructLayout( LayoutKind.Sequential )]
public class JSR_Info
public int propertyID;
[ MarshalAs( UnmanagedType.ByValArray, SizeConst=64 )]
public Int16 [] name;
[ MarshalAs( UnmanagedType.ByValArray, SizeConst=64 )]
public Int16 [] displayText;
public int attribs;
public int listID;
public int elementType;
public int elementCount;
public int byteCount;
public Int64 limitLo;
public Int64 limitHi;
public int units;
[DllImport("JSR_Common.dll", CharSet=CharSet.Unicode)]
public static extern int JSR_GetInfo(int Handle,
int ID, [Out] JSR_Info ji);
