View Thread: Visual Basic.Net Reference vs Instantiate

    ,pdcjlw1 wrote

    So at the point that I create the reference what occurs in the computer. Is there a variable created with no memory assigned?

    The reference takes up memory, too.  It's value is the 'where in memory is my variable located'.

    Think of all variables as 2 things, a location and a value. 

    Also do you have a example of a method that would perform the instantiate? What would that look like?

    Thanks for your help.

    Dim joe as Guy = New Guy()

    or, to break it up:

    Dim joe as Guy

    joe = New Guy()
