Member Property (Delphi Prism and PHP Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

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

OOP Basics

Some languages support object-based concepts such as Paradox, Access, and VB Classic. Other languages have OO extensions and fully support object orientation in a hybrid fashion (such as C++ and Dephi for Win32). Finally, some lanages such as C#, VB.Net, Prism, and Java are entirely written in OO. Meaning, every line of code written must occur within a class).

Member Property

[Other Languages] 
Delphi Prism:

Like Delphi, Delphi Prism uses a special property keyword to both get and set the values of properties. The read and write keywords are used to get and set the value of the property directly or through an accessor method. For a read-only property, leave out the write portion of the declaration.

Prism also supports a shortcut syntax called implicit fields (known as auto-generated properties in C#):

property CyborgAge: Integer;

You can give properties any visibility you wish (private, protected, etc). It is common in Delphi and Delphi Prism to start member fields with "F" (FCName in our example) and drop the "F" with properties that manage member fields (CyborgName in our example).

Syntax Example:
Cyborg = class(System.Object)
  FCName: String;
  property CyborgName: String read FCName write FCName;
