AW: $O - inherited class variables

Hi Jean-Marc,

Do I understand you correctly that you want to change the subtype of an object variable in a class?

Set reference lObjVarRef to $root.$libs.MYLIB.$classes.MYCLASS.$methods.MYMETHOD.$lvardefs.oTest
Calculate lObjVarRef.$objsubtype as 'o7zip'

If you want to use notation to override a variable from inherited to overridden, that I have no idea how to do.

Hello Rudolf,

Right-mouse-click on the variable, and override the variable. You can not access the inherited variable and the overridden variable using the VariableName, or $cinst.VariableName. Note: this can feel a bit strange, as both variables are discreet and can have different values, even though the variable is in the superclass as well as in the subclass. 

Thank you for your answer.

I have a "tool" library that is open before others and contains "tools" referred to by variables "object".

It take a long times to search for every use of a variable.

And then manually override it with the definition of the proper library.

I have not found out how to do it programmatically, ie with code instead of the hand ;-)
