Description

The DODEFAULT() function is used to call the parent class method from within a sub-class. It can only be used within a class method. It calls the parent class method of the same name as the calling method. It allows a sub-class to perform the default parent class behavior along with additional behavior specific to that particular sub-class.

Example

class Box 
  procedure Draw 
    messagebox("This is the parent Draw Method") 
  endproc && Draw 
endclass 
 
class Dialog1 of Box 
  procedure Draw 
    messagebox("This is the object Draw Method")
    // call the Draw method of the Box parent class
    dodefault() 
  endproc && Draw 
endclass 
 
oDIALOGOK = createobject("Dialog1")
oDIALOGOK.Draw()
release oDIALOGOK
