Discover how to visually create the code for your classes in your Visual Studio 2005 applications using the new Class Designer. You'll be visually "drawing" code for your classes quickly and easily!

In Visual Studio 2005, Microsoft has added a new tool called the Class Designer. This now workspace and toolbox can be found in most of the editions of non-free versions Visual Studio 2005.

The Class Designer allows you to graphically create classes and show the relationships among them. Using this tool, you can create the initial foundation of your program without first jumping into code. This can help you build cleaner designs and smoother relationships.

In this first video on the Class Designer, you will learn how to start the class designer and begin working with it. Using primarily "drag & drop" and the right click of your mouse, you'll discover how to create your first class with fields, properties, methods, and more. The example used is kept simple to illustrate the tool. You'll find, however, that applying the tool to more complex, real-world scenarios will work in a very similar manner.
