' program to demonstrate the "Friend" keyword.

Class Sample
    ' The Fun() is public if we are in the same assembly.
    Friend Sub Fun()
        Console.WriteLine("Friend function Fun() called")
    End Sub
End Class

Module Module1
    Sub Main()
        Dim obj As New Sample()
    End Sub
End Module


Friend function Fun() called
Press any key to continue . . .


In the above program, we created a class Sample that contains a Friend method, which can only be accessed within the same assembly.

After that, we created a module Module1 that contains the Main() method, the Main() method is the entry point for the program. And, we created the object of the Sample class and then called the Fun() method, which will print the appropriate message on the console screen.
