Create C++ classes

To create a C++ header and source file for a new class that you can add to a C++ project:

  1. Select File > New File > C++ Class Wizard > Choose.
  2. Specify the class name, base class, and header and source files for the class.

    {Enter Class Name dialog}

The wizard supports namespaces. To use a namespace, enter a qualified class name in the Class name field. For example: MyNamespace::MySubNamespace::MyClass. The wizard suggests existing namespaces and class names as you type.

You can also create your own project and class wizards.
