Calls of inherited procedures and functions

What is translated > Calls of inherited procedures and functions

 

For each class, which inherits from another a typedef is inserted into the C++ code, like

 

class foo: public bar {

  typedef bar inherited;

 

So, if in Object Pascal "inherited" is followed by a method identifier, it can be translated easily to C++.

 

inherited.foo  ->  inherited::foo()

 

When "inherited" has no identifier after it, it refers to the inherited method with the same name as the enclosing method. In this case, inherited can appear with or without parameters; if no parameters are specified, it passes to the inherited method the same parameters with which the enclosing method was called. For example,

 

procedure foo.bar(b : BOOLEAN); 

begin                                       

  inherited;           

end;                                

 

->

 

void __fastcall foo::bar ( bool b )

{

  inherited::bar( b );

}
