Trying to implement classes in my scripts.

I am trying to implement classes in my scripts but unable to do so. I see the follwing line on every page for testcomplete documentation for classes.
"The object-driven testing (ODT) functionality is deprecated. We do not recommend using it when creating new tests."

But i understand that TC won't support ODT (Object driven testing) approach in future but can i still define my own class in one script (vbscript class) and access the methods of the class from any other script. All i am trying to do is the following:
'In unit A
Class car
Private a
public function setA(a1)
a = a1
Log.Message(" success")
End function
End class


'In Unit B
sub mysub()
dim objcar
Set objcar = new car
objcar.setA(5)
end sub

So far, i am unable to do the above because line 2 ( Set objcar = new car) doesn't work because class car is not accessible in Unit B but the code works fine if class and Sub mysub() are both present in 1 unit or script. Is there a way to implement classes like this in TC verision 10.60

Please share some inputs.
Thanks,
vik

    The solution is:

     

    In every script (unit) just make a function that returns a reference to that class and call that function from any other unit to make use of that class.

     

    Unit A

    Class A

     

    End class

    Function GetClassARef(obj A)

    objRef = new Class A

    GetClassARef = objRef

    End function

     

    Call above function from any other script.

    Thanks.
