While everyone using the .NET Framework creates Classes, not many developers create Structures. For those of you who are creating Structures, Visual Basic 14 has some good news for you: You can now give your structure a constructor that doesn't accept parameters (a default constructor). Formerly any constructor you added to a Structure had to accept at least one parameter.
Here's an example of a Structure with a default parameter:
Private ErrorCount As Integer
ErrorCount = -1
If you want to have your default constructor actually execute, however, you must use the New keyword. This code will call the constructor and set ErrorCount to -1:
Dim pd As New ProcessData
This code will not:
Dim pd As ProcessData
and it will still run. Nifty, right?
