Partial Class (VB Classic and C++/CLI Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

VB Classic versus C++/CLI: A side by side comparison between VB Classic and C++/CLI.

 
OOP Details
 

More object oriented (OO) stuff.

Partial Class

[Other Languages] 

A partial class, or partial type, is a class that can be split into two or more source code files and/or two or more locations within the same source file. Each partial class is known as a class part or just a part. Logically, partial classes do not make any difference to the compiler. The compiler puts the class together at compile time and treats the final class or type as a single entity exactly the same as if all the source code was in a single location.

Languages Focus

For languages that have implemented partial classes, you need to know usage details and restrictions. Can you split a class into two or more files? Can you split a class within a source code file into two or more locations? What are the details of inheritance? Does it apply to interfaces as well?

VB Classic:  "Partial Classes" Not Supported
C++/CLI:  "Partial Classes" Not Supported

C++/CLI does not yet support partial classes. My assumption is that it will soon because it is a .Net language´┐Żbut only time will tell.
