A method is a function defined at Class level, and usually acting on a specific Object.

It can be:
  • public - It becomes part of the class interface.

  • private - Only other methods of the class can use it.

  • dynamic - It acts a specific object.

  • static - It is global, and can use only other static elements of the class.

A method can return a value whose datatype is the datatype of the method.

A method can have arguments, each one having a datatype. Some of the arguments can be optional.

A method can be programmed in Gambas, or in C/C++ when defined in a native Component.
