Modifying a Class Definition

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Once you have created a class, you can modify it. Changes made to a class affect all the subclasses and all the objects based on this class. You can add an enhancement to a class or fix a bug in the class, and all the subclasses and objects based on the class will inherit the change.

To modify a class in the Project Manager

  1. Select the class you want to modify.
  2. Choose Modify.

    The Class Designer opens.

You can also modify a visual class definition with the MODIFY CLASS command.

Caution   Don't change the Name property of a class if the class is already being used in any other application components. Otherwise, Visual FoxPro will not be able to locate the class when needed.
