This article was moved to MDriven Wiki – Calling base class
EAL (Eco Action Language) is fantastic as it allows you to create a complete system without bringing out visual studio or c# at all (nothing is wrong with c# – but it is amazing to be able to execute the model alone). But it had a limitation: when overriding methods there was no way to call the base class implementation of the method.
Now that is fixed by introducing the EAL operation “base” – works just as in c#:
Given the OnCreate method (that is called when a object is created).
And the Person.OnCreate
Note the self.base.OnCreate call that calls the superclass implementation of OnCreate (just as in c#)
And when creating a new Person I get this output:
…as in the RootClass added “RA ” and the Person added “PA ”
