#759 – Creating a New Type from a Class Diagram

You can create new types by directly entering code in the editor window.  You can also add a new type from a class diagram.

To start with, either open an existing class diagram or create a new one.

To create a new type, right-click on an empty area in the class diagram and select Add and then Class.  Note that you can also create other types (e.g. Enum, Interface, or Struct).



The New Class dialog will appear and you can enter the name of the new class and select an access modifier.  Note that the filename will be based on the class name by default.



After you click OK, the new type will show up in the class diagram.



You can now open your new type in the code editor window, to see the code that was generated for you.
