Collection Constructor

Creates and returns a new Visual Basic Collection object.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)


Public Sub New
public Collection()


The Visual Basic collection returned by this constructor is empty and does not have any initial capacity allocated.

Visual Basic collections are not compatible with the .NET Framework collections available in the System.Collections, System.Collections.Generic, and System.Collections.Specialized namespaces.


The following example creates a new Visual Basic collection and assigns it to the variable coll:

Dim coll As New Microsoft.VisualBasic.Collection()

This Collection object is one-based, which means that the index values of the elements range from 1 through the value of the Count property. Visual Basic collections hold elements of type Object.
