Coder Object Orientation (OO):
Member Method

Take Away:

Also known as a Class Method.

A code routine that belongs to the class or an object instance (an instance of the class). Methods that belong to the class are called class methods or static methods. Methods that belong to an object instance are called instance methods, or simply methods.

When a method returns a value, it is a function method. When no value is returned (or void), it is a procedure method.

Methods frequently use method parameters to transfer data. When one object instance calls another object instance using a method with parameters, you call that messaging.

Member Method -

Also known as a Class Method.

A code routine that belongs to the class or an object instance (an instance of the class). Methods that belong to the class are called class methods or static methods. Methods that belong to an object instance are called instance methods, or simply methods.

When a method returns a value, it is a function method. When no value is returned (or void), it is a procedure method.

Methods frequently use method parameters to transfer data. When one object instance calls another object instance using a method with parameters, you call that messaging.


Methods have References

Most languages implement methods so that you can reference the one and only one method code in memory. That is, one location for class methods and one location for each object instance method.

Types of Methods

In addition to class/static methods and instance methods, other types of methods include abstract method, accessor methods (getters and setters), constructor methods, and destructor methods.
