Use the New operator to instantiate objects of user-defined types, as well as Uno services, structs and enumerations.
Dim oObj as New ObjectType
oObj = New ObjectType
The New operator can be used either during variable declaration or in an assignment operation.
The following example uses the New operator to create an instance of the PropertyValue Uno struct.
' Instantiating the object during variable declaration Dim oProp1 as New com.sun.star.beans.PropertyValue oProp1.Name = "Some name" oProp1.Value = 100 ' The same can be accomplished with an assignment Dim oProp2 as Object oProp2 = New com.sun.star.beans.PropertyValue oProp2.Name = "Other name" oProp2.Value = 200
The example below creates a new type Student and instantiates an object of this type:
Type Student FirstName as String Program as String End Type Sub TestObjects Dim oStudent1 as New Student oStudent1.FirstName = "John" oStudent2.Program = "Computer Science" End Sub
