"Object variable or With block variable not set"

I am trying to call a simple class module sub with a command button.  When I do that I get the error.  However, it compiles fine.

Here is the code from the form:

Private Sub Connect_Click()
Dim myLaser As CLaser
myLaser.Connect
End Sub

Here is the code from the class:

Public Sub Connect()
Dim Number As String

Number = GetLaserServerIP
FLaserTestApp.Text1.Text = SetIP(Number)
End Sub

I think my problem is really the way I call the connect function from the form.  I am not sure what's wrong.  Please help me.

Thanks,
axnst2

Dim myLaser As CLaser
will declare the myLaser variable to be of type CLaser

Dim myLaser As New CLaser
declares the myLaser variable to be of type CLaser _AND_ allocates space for it

You can accomplish the same thing like this:

Dim myLaser As CLaser
Set MyLaser = New CLaser
