Initialize Event

Occurs when an instance of the associated class is created.

Private Sub Class_Initialize()
   statements
End Sub

The statements part consists of zero or more code statements to be run when the class is initialized.

The following example illustrates the use of the Initialize event.

Class TestClass
   Private Sub Class_Initialize   ' Setup Initialize event.
      MsgBox("TestClass started")
   End Sub
   Private Sub Class_Terminate   ' Setup Terminate event.
      MsgBox("TestClass terminated")
   End Sub
End Class

Set X = New TestClass   ' Create an instance of TestClass.
Set X = Nothing   ' Destroy the instance.
