Property Set ... End Property

The Property Set statement block allows you to perform a procedure that sets a reference to an object.

The Property Set statement block can only be used inside a Class statement block and cannot be used inside of any other procedure. There are two other related statements that also can only be used within a Class block, Property Get and Property Let that, respectively, permit you to return the value of a property and to assign the value of a property.

The Property Set statement allows you to declare the name of the procedure, to accept and change the values of optional arguments, and to perform a series of statements that ultimately sets the reference to the object.

There is one mandatory argument. You must give the name of a reference variable to which the value is to be assigned. This same name must be used on the right side of the object reference assignment. (i.e., the name "ReferenceName" is used in the syntax example.)

By default, the Property Set procedure is Public, but you can declare it to be Private. You can use the optional Exit Property statement to immediately exit the from inside the Property Set procedure.

The End Property is required.
