VBA How To

Create your own Property by SteveBausch
Posted: 2 Apr 03

Create your own Property, it will show up in Intellisense, like any obedient property.

This can be done for any object with code, and since a worksheet is an object with code....

Just tested "Tagging" a code module, that works too, though I cannot say it's usefulness.

Normally, people think of adding properties to a class module, or to userforms to allow retrieval of "Canceled" or "Completed" booleans, etc. Keep in mind you shouldn't unload the form until you retrieve the property. Hide the form, that's okay, just don't unload it.

Have yet to see a decent tutorial that explained the "flow", so I have commented the code, and created descriptive namings.

Dim InternalVariable As String 'Internal variable that holds the property's value.

Property Let Tag(AssignedValue As String) 'Allows assignment
InternalVariable = AssignedValue 'Internal variable assigned as argument
End Property

Property Get Tag() As String 'Allows accessing
Tag = InternalVariable 'Property assigned value of internal variable
End Property

Property Get Statement
Property Set Statement
