object method

You are here: irt.org | FOLDOC | object method

<programming> In object-oriented programming, a function that is called, or "invoked", on an object, as opposed to a class method which is invoked on a class.

For example, a class "Person" might have an object method to return a person's name and a class method to return the number of people.

An object method called on an object of class C may be defined by C or may be inherited from one of C's superclasses.
