Self Keyword (Delphi Prism and ASP Classic Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

Delphi Prism versus ASP Classic: A side by side comparison between Delphi Prism and ASP Classic.

 
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
ASP Classic:   me

Same as VB. The Me keyword is a built-in variable that refers to the class where the code is executing.

Syntax Example:
Class Cyborg
 Public CyborgName
 
 Public Function IntroduceYourself() 
  'Using Me. Prints Cameron.
  Response.Write("Hi, my name is " & Me.CyborgName & ".")
  
  'The above is just a demo. You could also not include "Me." 
  'in this case because we are in context of Me now. Using Me 
  'makes more sense when you start to pass Me as a parameter 
  'to a method.
 End Function 
End Class
