If a particular object has the same name as another object of a different type (for example, if a field is named First_Name and a variable is also named First_Name), 4D uses a priority system to identify the object. It is up to the programmer to ensure that unique names are used. 4D identifies names used in methods in the following order:

Fields


  1. Commands
  2. Methods
  3. Plug-in routines
  4. Predefined constants
  5. Variables
