Hi

I want to know how to utilize the Property Function.
eg,

Public Property Let AppVersion(sVersion as String)
   lblAppVersion = sVersion
End Property

Where lblAppVersion is a Label control in a form.

What is the above statement trying to achieve ?
I mean, is it like a function or procedure where
we need to call it somewhere in our code.

Pls advice.

Thanks & Rgds

you can use property procedures to assign(let) or fetch(get) values from your component.

Suppose you make a component(e.g a dll) "customer" and now you don't want the user to have access to the variable "name" which u r using inside your component at many places. Now what u can do is to add a property cust_name. you must be knowing how to do that...just go to tools -> procedure and add property. give name as cust_name.

soon you will see two procedures let and get in ur window. now when u will make a object of ur component customer like this.

dim myobj as new customer

myobj.cust_name="David"
As soon as u say the above let property procedure is called and it assigns "name" the value "David"

similarly when you say
Text1.text=myobj.cust_name

Get is called and the value stored in variable "name" is fetched.

hope this helps you.
