Join Josh Modglin for an in-depth discussion in this video Class overview, part of AutoCAD Add-ins Using VB.NET.
- [Instructor] Now that we have our project created…and we have an understanding a little bit more…about the project properties,…let's go ahead and look at the class…or classes that were created for us.…From that, then we're going to create our own class…and put our first routine or command inside.…Now, to go back and get a little bit of understanding,…a class really, within…Visual Basic, or any .NET.….NET is object oriented programming language.…
So that means everything that you work with…within .NET, is an object.…A piece of text is not just characters…but is actually a string object.…I know this seems like a little thing…but it's important to remember as we build our own…objects in .NET.…Now a class may seem to you simply as a chunk of code.…But we use classes for everything we program…within our basic .NET project.…So a class will house our methods…or the routines or functions,…properties, everything that we use.…
When we call this class in .NET,…it is viewed as an object itself.…We create a new instance…of that class object.…
