Self Keyword (Delphi Prism and Corel Paradox Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

Delphi Prism versus Corel Paradox: A side by side comparison between Delphi Prism and Corel Paradox.

 
Language Details
 

Language Details is kind of a catch all for stuff that didn't make it into language basics nor any other category.

Self Keyword

[Other Languages] 
Delphi Prism:   Self

Within the implementation of a method, the identifier Self references the object in which the method is called. The Self variable is an implicit parameter for each object method. A method can use this variable to refer to its owning class.

To refer to the current instance of a class or structure, use the Self keyword. It provides a way to refer to the specific instance in which the code is currently executing. It is particularly useful for passing information about the currently executing instance.

You cannot use it with static method functions because static methods do not belong to an object instance. If you try, you'll get an error.

More Info / Comment
Corel Paradox:   Self

A built-in object variable that represents the UIObject to which the currently executing code is attached.

Syntax Example:  
method pushButton(var eventInfo Event)
  msgInfo("", self.Name)
endMethod
