Class Statement

Declares the name of a class, as well as a definition of the variables, properties, and methods that comprise the class.

Class name
End Class 


Required. Name of the Class; follows standard variable naming conventions.
Required. One or more statements that define the variables, properties, and methods of the Class.


Within a Class block, members are declared as either Private or Public using the appropriate declaration statements. Anything declared as Private is visible only within the Class block. Anything declared as Public is visible within the Class block, as well as by code outside the Class block. Anything not explicitly declared as either Private or Public is Public by default. Procedures (either Sub or Function) declared Public within the class block become methods of the class. Public variables serve as properties of the class, as do properties explicitly declared using Property Get, Property Let, and Property Set. Default properties and methods for the class are specified in their declarations using the Default keyword. See the individual declaration statement topics for information on how this keyword is used.
