Create a new Project Template

Upon initialization, the VB5 IDE presents you with a list of project types, such as Standard EXE or ActiveX EXE. You can also create new project types yourself by creating templates and saving them to the Projects folder in your Templates directory. To find the Templates directory on your system, look in Options under the Tools menu, then select the Environment tab. The Templates directory is listed at the bottom of the dialog. After you create a template, its icon appears with the predefined project types whenever you start VB or use the FileNew command.
What is a template anyway? It's simply a project you save to the Projects folder. It includes all forms, controls, classes, code, and other elements in the project. It serves as a foundation for a new project and can have as much or as little prebuilt content as you need.
