This object is created by using the Class statement, and it provides access to the events of the class.
You cannot explicitly declare a variable to be of type Class. In the VBScript context, the term "class object" refers to any object defined using the VBScript Class statement.
Once you have created a class definition using the Class statement, you can create an instance of the class using the following form:
Dim X Set X = New classname
Because VBScript is a late-bound language, you cannot do any of the following:
Dim X as New classname
Dim X X = New classname
Set X = New Scripting.FileSystemObject
