Main Page

Makes it possible for you to edit existing properties and methods or add new properties and methods.

This dialog box appears when you choose Edit Property/Method on the Form menu that appears when the Form Designer is open or the Class menu that appears when the Class Designer is open.

Note:
For forms and form sets, the property or method is scoped to the standalone form or form set, as applicable.

Property/Method Information


Displays information about properties and methods added to a form, form set, or class. You can sort columns in ascending or descending alphabetical order by clicking the column header. You can resize the columns by clicking and dragging between column headers.

Column Description

Name

The name of each property and method.

Type

Assign

Visibility

Indicates the visibility of a property or method. For a form or form set, the visibility of properties and methods is always Public. For a class, the visibility can be Public, Protected, or Hidden.

Tip:
In the Class Designer, you can set the same level of visibility for all selected properties and methods by selecting multiple properties and methods.

By selecting multiple properties and methods and setting their visibility level to Protected or Hidden, you can prevent the selected properties and methods from appearing in the type libraries.
