I have been researching this question and so far I have not found an answer. I passed the Java programmer certification test but have never worked professionally in Java. So I'll use Java OOP terminlogy to describe what I am trying to do.

In Java I can declare a private class instance variable that is within scope to all methods in that class. Within that class, I can declare a publicly accessable method usually called a Getter or Setter method so that all methods in all objects can get or set the value of that private variable. Each object instantiated from that class has its own private instance variable so that the object that is an instance of that class does not have to share its private instance variable with other objects instantiated from that class.

This is a way of avoiding the risk involved with passing parameters to a form object which is an instance of its VB.NET form class declaration without going through a globally accessable variable. A risky proposition.

VB.NET won't let me declare a function in a form class or declare a Sub(routine) public as best I can tell without getting those squiggly blue lines that indicate a syntax error. I now have a
"Private ii_InsuredPickParm As Integer"  though.

Thank you,
TedPalmer

You can set a property up...

Public Property SetInteger()
  Get
    Return PrivateVariable
  End Get
  Set (byval value)
   PrivateVariable = value
  End Set
End Property

Not sure if this is what you want, but hope it helps

Thanks for the response. This looks good. Now that you have posted it I recall seeing an example of how to declare a property elsewhere, but it didn't occur to me that this was a possible solution to my problem. I'll experiment with this this after noon and get back on this message thread soon.

Thank you,

For the record though, you can in fact declare subs/functions in a class as Public.  Show us your code...

Idle_Mind,

You are right about ". . . declare subs/functions in a class as Public". I just messed up. I was appending my code below the "End Class" statement. I did a Control-End and just started typing not realizing that I was outside the bounds of the class declaration.

That takes care of that issue.

Thank you,
TedPalmer
