Hi everyone! Here''s a design question for you: I have a heirarchy of classes that manage and display a textbox in my current project. The main class in called Console, and under it are Animation (with subclasses ScrollLine and DrawLine) and Font. Now, I could simply put all of these smaller classes inside Console in the form of nested classes. Or, I could create a namespace and put them all inside of that. Outside of this system, only Console is used. What does one do in a situation like this? When one has something that looks like a namespace, but has a central class that encompasses the namespace? I thought nested classes where bad design.... -Solstice deninet.com aeris.deninet.com "...I was given three choices, the earth, the stars, or..."
