VB.Net: Resuable code doubt

Hi, i am using vb.net

I use to declare some variables. And i declare them again and again in many methods.

For example

dim strName as string
dim strNumber as Number
dim active as Boolean
.
.
.many more

What i am asking is, now it is possible to invoke a single method from multiple classes. Like wise is it possible to keep these variables declared on a single location and the use them in other methods and classes, so that i dont have to retype the variable declarations again and again on each and every method or class.

Hope my question was clear.

Thanks in advance

Either:
(1) Declare them as Public in a Module.

(2) Make them Shared variables:
Public Class Form1
    Public Shared strName As String
End Class

Open in new window

Then you can use Form1.strName from anywhere

(3) Create a Class to hold the values and pass that around.
