If I create an array of abeam, and I set length here to zero does it initialize that way -

Not sure what you're asking. With the type declared that way, only the "flag" component gets initialized - the other components are undefined. If you add "= 0" (and the :: before the name) to "length" then anything you declare of that type will have the length component also initialized to zero. If it's a run-time allocation, I think you would be better off to explicitly initialize those two fields in the code rather than using type initialization.
