Add a method

Use the add method wizard to add a method to an interface in your project. If the project contains a class associated with the interface, the wizard also adds the method to the class.

Add a method to your interface:

  1. From the Visual Studio main menu, choose View > Class view. In the Class View pane, expand the project node to display the interface you want to add the method to.


    You can also add methods to dispinterfaces. Unless the project is attributed, dispinterfaces are located under the library node.

  2. Right-click the name of the interface.

  3. On the shortcut menu, choose Add > Add Method.

  4. In the Add Method wizard dialog box, provide the information to create the method as described in the next section.

  5. Select OK to add the method.
