What does a class mean in VB.NET?
Imagine a class as some group of information for describing an
object in real life, forget about programming. A class is something
that does not yet exists. Its something only on paper. A design. A
set of information for giving later a real instance to its real
content. Class-oriented programming gives to the programmer (and
the program itself) the extreme ability to be easy serviced and
easy upgraded. Its more likely the easiest way to understand better
what the code does, even if that code is very big in size.
a class can be analogous with any real life object like "Table".
now if we need to define its properties like length, with , height
etc, and calculations like volume, surface area etc. like that
while programming if something has few particular properties and
methods to be performed upon, those can be consolidated in a class.
i.e in a class we can consolidate the properties and methods of
something, which can be instantiated later on
