Accessing a Collection within a Class

Posted on 2001-08-16

I have created two classes, one called Order and the other called LineItem. The Order class has a Collection in it of type LineItem. I am writing a method in my Order class to populate the Order object and the lineitem collection based on the order info in a database. However, I do not know how to access the lineitems from within this method. I have tried using the lineitem.add but I get an error. It would seem pointless to do a seperate Lineitem method to populate that, but it seems to be the only option unless I can figure out how to do it within the method of my Order object/class.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks.

If I properly undersood:

class LineItem
  private p_linedata as string
  public sub SetData(l as string)
     p_linedata = l
  end sub

class Orders
  private p_item as Collection
  public sub class_initialize
    set p_item=new Collection
  end sub
  public sub Populate
    dim l as new LineItem
    l.SetData (rst("name"))
    p_item.Add l
  end sub
  public function GetLineData(lineNo as long)
    GetLineData = p_item(lineNo)
  end function
 
------

Read code and ask if something is unclear.
