Subclassing a Class Definition

Visual Studio .NET 2003

You can create a subclass of a user-defined class in one of two ways.

To create a subclass of a user-defined class

  1. In the Project Manager New Class dialog box, click the dialog button to the right of the Based On box.
  2. In the Open dialog box, choose the class you want to base the new class on.


  • Use the CREATE CLASS command.

    For example, to base a new class, x, on parentclass in Mylibrary.vcx, use this code:

    CREATE CLASS x OF y AS parentclass ;
      FROM mylibrary
