How can I make an item accessible to all areas of my assembly? For instance
say I have a string constant called sProgramName that I set to be "My
Program" located in a class called CConstants. How can I make this string
accessible to all classes within my assembly without 1) having to
instantiate a class or 2) reference the class (eg I want to just reference
sProgramName not CConstants.sPro gramName)?

Constants are implicitly static so you never need to instantiate the class
to access it. Just make sure the constant is public or internal so other
classes can reference it.

2) reference the class (eg I want to just reference sProgramName not CConstants.sPro gramName)?

That you can't do.

Hi all What is the way in .NET to make an Assembly global for all other assemblies that reference it? In VB6 there was a property on a DLL called Instancing, and if you set it to 6 - GlobalMultiUse, then you don't have to declare an object in order to call it's functions, the other DLL's could simply call the functions directly. What I...
