Creating Classes

Visual Studio .NET 2003

You can create new classes in the Class Designer and you can see how each object will appear to the user as you design it.

To create a new class

  • In the Project Manager, select the Classes tab and choose New.


  • From the File menu, choose New, select Class, and choose New File.


  • Use the CREATE CLASS command.

The New Class dialog box lets you specify what to call the new class, the class to base the new class on, and the library to store it in.
