Determining classes in existence

Folks,

I'm developing a one-program-does-everything system. The idea is mainly to get away from my usual write a bit of code to solve a problem and then forget it, or where it was done.

At present I'm doing this by creating various classes with the required functionality and, on a very basic scale, allowing them to communicate with each other.

I'm using a single form to create instances of the classes which may in turn create instances of other classes.

My question is : can I determine what classes are in existence (and use them) and from where can I do this  (I'm assuming at the moment that classes instantiated from the form are "visible" to the form and classes instantiated from 'other' classes are "visible" to the 'other' classes only)?

I have heard mention of using collections to do something like this. If I understand correctly, this is also heading in the direction of "persistence" that I have read bout in relation to ActiveX controls.

Eddykt,

Thanks for your comment.

I mentioned Activex at the end of my question, but I am not using ActiveX in the project.

Am I wrong or is your comment more tailored towards Activex with the registry acess etc ? I thought there might be something simpler i.e. the form object having collections that are added to when a class is called from it etc.

The code sounds very interesting.

I'm increasing the ponts as there is information I haven't looked for being sent.

Thanks

Mikkil
