Structure in C

Hi Everyone....
I have a structure:
typedef struct
unsigned char command;
unsigned char data_length;
char data[MAX_DATA_LENGTH];

My problem is that,I want to use a function here...
When i assign values to these variables they are as:
I want to call a function here..or assign a function value here........

is it possible to do so...

Thanks ...

Yes it's possible, you have to use a pointer on function, something like

struct Packet {
    int (*do_command) (arg);
    unsigned char data_length;
    char data [MAX_DATA_LENGTH];

int my_command (arg) {
   /* Do what you want */

int main (void) {
   struct Packet packet;
   packet.do_command = my_command;
   /* ... */
