Method

Used to overload the * operator, providing custom functionality.

Notes

Create an Operator_Multiply function in a class to specify the functionality of the * operator for that class.

In the function, the Self instance is the left operand and the other operand is passed as a parameter.

Sample Code

Using the Vector class (see Operator_Add) with two Integer elements, x and y, we define an Operator_Multiply function that multiplies the sum of the Self instance with the passed instance.

Function Operator_Multiply(rhs As Vector) As Integer
Var a, b As Integer
a = Self.x + Self.y
b = rhs.x + rhs.y

Return a * b
End Function
