VB6 Dictionary Object


I have created a VB class and during the running of my program many instances of this class are created...Is it possible to add these 'objects' (only of one Class type) into a VB Dictionary..? (Microsoft Scripting RunTime).

If the above answer is 'yes' I later need to loop through the Dictionary and process all the returned 'objects', this includes calling 'GetMethods( )' of the class objects. Can you give me an example...?

Thanks Ian

Yes you can do this if I've understood your question. Try something along the lines of...

Dim dicObjects as New Dictionary
Dim varKey as Variant

'add objects to dictionary e.g.
dicObjects.Add key1, Obj1
dicObjects.Add keyN, ObjN

For Each varKey in dicObjects.Keys

Hope this helps
