1. Can you please explain the differences between the following array declarations and which is declaration correct?

    Private courseList As Course() = New Course(5) {}
    Private courseList(5) As Course()

2. I want i know is both declarations allow courseList to carry a reference to the actual object.

3. What about this one: Dim values() As Integer = {1, 2, 3}
Integer is a class, so what values will hold in here? Will it hold the actual number (1,2,3) or their references? If values hold the actual numbers 1,2,3 then Integer is not a class datatype, its a primitive because as i know array can hold actual values of primitive datatype values. Can you please clarify..

Thanks
