How to: Put a Value in a Property (Visual Basic)
You store a value in a property by putting the property name on the left side of an assignment statement.
Set procedure stores a value, but you do not explicitly call it by name. You use the property just as you would use a variable. Visual Basic makes the calls to the property's procedures.

' The following statement calls the Set procedure of the Visual Basic TimeOfDay property. TimeOfDay = #12:00:00 PM#
If the property takes arguments, follow the property name with parentheses to enclose the argument list. If there are no arguments, you can optionally omit the parentheses.
Place the arguments in the argument list within the parentheses, separated by commas. Be sure you supply the arguments in the same order that the property defines the corresponding parameters.
The value generated on the right side of the assignment statement is stored in the property.
