Once you have created your own
(sub)class for a particular purpose, or once you have created the
style guide for your application, you may want to protect your work
from inadvertent changes. You can do this by making a class of
objects read-only. Once a class is read-only, you cannot save any
changes made to it. It is still possible, however, to save the
changes as a subclass.
Template classes are initially read-only. Note also that you
cannot change the properties of a class that is currently open in
the design view. Close the class first.
To make a class read-only:
||In the Windows Designer catalog , select the class you want to
||From the menu bar, choose View, Properties, or right-mouse
click and choose Properties.
||Check the Read-Only box.
||If desired, write comments in the Description field.
