Go Up to View Menu

Adds a field to a class or into the global scope on the C++ Class Explorer.

On the C++ Class Explorer Window, invoke the Add Field dialog box from either:

  • The Add a new field to this class ClExplAddField.bmp toolbar button
  • The context menu command Add field.

Note: The Add Field context menu command and the Add a new method to this class ClExplAddField.bmp toolbar button are enabled only for elements that are declared in a C++ managed unit. To create a C++ unit, choose either:

  • File > New > Unit - C++
  • File > New > Form - C++

C++ managed units differ from ordinary C++ source files in that the header (.h) and implementation (.cpp) files are grouped together. For a C++ managed unit, the Code Editor displays a tab for the .cpp file and a tab for the .h file along the bottom of the window.

You cannot add fields, methods, or properties to FireMonkey elements using the C++ Class Explorer.
