Examples

The following example creates a package, and adds a variable, myVar, to its variable collection.

static void Main(string[] args)  
        {  
            Package p = new Package();  
            //Add a variable, myvar, to the package variables  
            // collection. The variable has a value of 5, in the myNamespace  
            // namespace.  
            Variable var = p.Variables.Add("myVar", false, "myNamespace", 5);  
            //  
            // Enter the rest of your code here.  
            //  
        }  
Shared  Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)  
            Dim p As Package =  New Package()   
            'Add a variable, myvar, to the package variables  
            ' collection. The variable has a value of 5, in the myNamespace  
            ' namespace.  
            Dim var As Variable =  p.Variables.Add("myVar",False,"myNamespace",5)   
            '  
            ' Enter the rest of your code here.
