inheritance of module variables

Post by bimal jose » Tue Mar 11, 2014 10:35 am

is it possible to inherit module variable over different code modules. For example i have module variable (say mVar) in a standard code module (stdModule). is it possible to avail the module variable (mVar) in a different code module ?
way to add module variable -- right click and select the option "Insert Module Variable".

Hello bimal jose,

Yes of course, you can just derive the class which holds the module variable in order to access the module variable.

I have created a small sample:

Expect we have a module variable “NewVariable” within our class UserCodeModule1.

Code: Select all

string _NewVariable = "";
    	public string NewVariable
    		get { return _NewVariable; }
    		set { _NewVariable = value; }
In our class UserCodeModule2 we derive from UserCodeModule1 like shown below:

Code: Select all

public class UserCodeModule2 : UserCodeModule1, ItestModule
Now you are able to access our module variable „NewVariable within our UserCodeModule2-class.
