Default Project.Class.Property.?

Ok. For instance ADO has

Adodb is the project, Recordset is the Class, Field is the property, what is Value? Sub Property?

I want to add a Size property associated to my Name Property inside my class. (So you get the . List in vb when you use the Name Property)

How do I do this?

you got something wrong in your thinking..

adodb is a class...
recordset is a class
field is a class
value is a property..

you can add any class to a class.. and you will see things like that...

ADODB is a library (dll). A Recordset is a class defined in that library, and a Field is also a class in that library. There is no Field property or other such member with that name in the Recordset class. There is a Fields collection whose members are Field objects. Finally, the Field object has a Value property.

Thus, the reference might be:


The Library/Dll name is optional as long as no other library referenced in the project has a Recordset Class. If there is, and thus:


is ambiguous, then the first library containing the object reference is the one that is used. This is why the Project References dialog has up and down buttons labeled 'Priority' - so the order can be changed if need be. It's probably better (IMO) to spell out the full reference in this case, though, as it is clearer which library is being used.
