I would like to return a udt as a property for a class.   Is it possible?  I dont want to make another class because this class has many properties that must be this type.

I think that you need to return as variant, but working with it like an UDT.

Richie,
Even if I declare as Variant, it gives me compile error because it knows I am trying to return a UDT.

Example:

Private m_udtSample As UDTSample

Public Property Get SampleProperty() As Variant
   SampleProperty = m_udtSample
End Property

A User Defined Type (UDT) allows the programmer to create a complex data type by combining the Visual Basic data types like String, Double, and Integer. The following code defines a Customer data type made up of string, numeric, and date values:

Type Customer
   Name As String
   CreditLimit As Currency
   BirthDate As Date
End Type

Public Function UDTRoutine (CustomerData As Customer) _
As Customer

    A developer could call the function like this, both passing a UDT and accepting the function's return value into a UDT variable:

Dim udtData As Customer
udtData.Name = "Peter Vogel"
udtData.BDate = "31/05/53"
udtData.CreditLimit = 200

udtData = obj.UDTRoutine(udtData)

    In Visual Basic 5.0, you can not pass or return UDT's to methods and some containers will not allow you to use UDT's.
