I have a class with Message type in it.

I use:

Dim oMes As CMessage

to declare it.  Then I use

For Each oMes In m_colMessages

to loop through the ones I have.  How can I delete a certain oMes within that FOR EACH loop? I tried setting it equal to nothing, as in:


but it errored...thanks

set omes=nothing.

The better will be inside a for i=1 to m_colmessages.count
set m_colmessages(i-1)=nothing.

It is safer.

The above implies the m_colmessages is a collection which I guess it is from your code extract.

Oh, you can remove completely by doing m_colmessages.remove. It will erase the object from the collection. You will need to play a little bit for the for i=1 to ... since the deletion affects the collection count property.
