Parameters

Cross Reference Examples:

Access VBA:   ByRef, ByVal

By Reference or Value
For parameters, you can optionally specify ByVal or ByRef. ByRef is the default if you don't specify.

Syntax Example:  
Function SomeRoutine(ByRef pPerson, ByVal pName, Age)
ASP Classic:   ByRef, ByVal

By Reference or Value
For parameters, you can optionally specify ByVal or ByRef. ByRef is the default if you don't specify.

Syntax Example:  
Function SomeRoutine(ByRef pPerson, ByVal pName, Age)
C#: 

In C# the data type of each parameter must be specified, even if adjacent parameters are of the same type. To pass a parameter by reference, use the ref or out keyword.

Syntax Example:

integer Add(int a, int b)

Corel Paradox:   var, const

By Reference or Value (and by constant)
The default for parameters is by value. For by reference, add var in front of the parameter. ObjectPAL also offers constant parameters where you add const in front of the parameter. A constant parameter is like a read-only parameter the compiler can optimize. You cannot assign a value to a constant parameter.

Syntax Example:  
method cmCode(s String) ;...s is by value.
endMethod
 
  
method pushButton(var eventInfo Event)
  ;...eventInfo is by reference.
endMethod
  
method cmCode(Const s String)
  ;...s is a constant read-only parameter.
endMethod
  
proc cpNever() String
  return "Never duplicate a line of code!"
endProc

Delphi:   var, const

Object Pascal allows parameters of the same type to be listed together, separated by commas, and followed with a single data type (more params of different data types can follow, after a semi-colon).

Delphi also supports default parameters (a form of overloading).

By Reference or Value (and by constant): The default for parameters is by value. For by reference, add var in front of the parameter. Object Pascal also offers constant parameters where you add const in front of the parameter. A constant parameter is like a local constant or read-only parameter the compiler can optimize. You cannot assign a value to a constant parameter, nor can you pass one as a var parameter to another routine. (But when you pass an object reference as a constant parameter, you can still modify the object's properties.)

Syntax Example:
function Add(a, b: integer) : integer; 
begin
  Result := a + b;
end;
 
procedure ReplaceTime(var pDT: TDateTime; const pNewDT: TDateTime);
begin
end;
Delphi Prism:   var, const, out

Defining
Prism allows parameters of the same type to be listed together, separated by commas, and followed with a single data type (more params of different data types can follow, after a semi-colon).

By Reference or Value (and by constant and out)
The default for parameters is by value. For by reference, add var in front of the parameter. Prism also offers constant parameters where you add const in front of the parameter. A constant parameter is like a local constant or read-only parameter the compiler can optimize. You cannot assign a value to a constant parameter, nor can you pass one as a var parameter to another routine. (But when you pass an object reference as a constant parameter, you can still modify the object's properties.) Finally, Prism offers an out parameter type which is like a var parameter except it does not have to be initialized prior.

Syntax Example:  
function Add(a, b: integer) : integer; 
begin
  Result := a + b;
end;
 
procedure ReplaceTime(var pDT: TDateTime; const pNewDT: TDateTime);
begin
end;
VB Classic:   ByRef, ByVal

By Reference or Value
For parameters, you can optionally specify ByVal or ByRef. ByRef is the default if you don't specify.

Syntax Example:  
Function SomeRoutine(ByRef pPerson, ByVal pName, Age)
VB.Net:   ByVal, ByRef

By Reference or Value
For parameters, you can optionally specify ByVal or ByRef. ByVal is the default if you don't specify which is changed from VB Classic (in VB Classic, ByRef was the default).

Syntax Example:  
Private Function Add(ByRef a As Integer, _
ByRef b As Integer) As Integer
  Add = a + b
End Function
