Custom Routines (Delphi Prism and PHP Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

Delphi Prism versus PHP: A side by side comparison between Delphi Prism and PHP.

 
Language Details
 

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

Custom Routines

[Other Languages] 

Languages Focus

For non-OOP languages, a custom routine is a function, procedure, or subroutine and for pure OOP languages, a custom routine is a class method. Hybrid languages (both non-OOP and OOP) combine both.

Delphi Prism:   method, procedure, function

In Prism, everything is within a class (just like with C#, VB.Net, and Java). So you create class methods using the method keyword. Alternatively, you can use procedure or function if you want the compiler to enforce returning or not returning a value.

[function/procedure] RoutineName : ReturnType; 

As with C++, your custom routine must come before it's first usage or you have to prototype it in the Interface section.

Syntax Example:
method Form1.IntroduceYourself;
begin
  MessageBox.Show("Hello, I do not have a name yet.");
end;

procedure Form1.SayHello(pName: String);
begin
  MessageBox.Show("Hello " + pName);
end;
 
function Form1.Add(p1, p2 : Double): Double;
begin
  Result := p1 + p2;
end;
PHP:  "Custom Function" function

PHP uses functions and loosely typed parameters. Function definitions can come before or after their usage so my preference when mixing PHP in with a mostly HTML page is to put the functions after the </html> tag.

Syntax Example:
function sayHello($pName) {
 echo "Hello " . $pName . "<br>";
}
 
function add($p1, $p2) {
 return $p1 + $p2;
}
