Discussion Modules do not inherit parent constructs.

Once again, Jesus4Lyf proves to be a smart cookie.

Solved!

This is beginning to ruin everything I've been striving to accomplish.

JASS:
module bull
    method guy takes nothing returns nothing
        call BJDebugMsg("guy")
    endmethod
endmodule

interface console
    method guy takes nothing returns nothing defaults nothing
endinterface

struct parent extends console
    static method onInit takes nothing returns nothing
        call thistype(0).guy()
    endmethod
endstruct

struct child extends parent
    implement bull
endstruct


Here's what's happening: struct parent doesn't have any business with calling the "guy" method. Only a child struct wants that method. Problem is that importing a module into the child struct, even though that module contains "guy", nothing happens. The message "guy" never gets displayed.

• By putting the module in the parent struct, "guy" gets displayed.
• By putting guy into the child struct directly, "guy" gets displayed.
• By omitting "defaults nothing" from the interface, a compile-error says "guy" does not exist.
• By viewing this in the war3map.j file, the trigger arrays which are supposed to launch "guy" are never assigned to a trigger.

JassHelper doesn't recognize the module at any point in the compile process as an actual part of the child struct.

I'm going to switch to a textmacro now, see if that works, but I'm helping the community be aware of this glitch.]

Isn't [LJASS]thistype(0)[/LJASS] always [LJASS]null[/LJASS]?

You are smarter than I'd like to admit sometimes, Jesus4Lyf, thanks for the fresh perspective!

The test fails, just like you said, "0" is never instanciated by the child struct.

I've figured out why my system is failing as well - the create method is being done by the parent struct (duh?).

Wow, thank you, sir. Once again, my wild ideas have been put in their place. I'm going to have to stop jumping to conclusions.

    does anyone still use silk road forums?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's about as active as here I'd say. Not much going on.
  • Wizard Wizard:
    I think it doesn't help that the silk road game isn't as popular any more I think. The only MMO I play these days is FFXIV like most other people I know.
  • The Helper The Helper:

    Back in the old days when I was getting a license people were getting them at 16 yrs old and many were getting hardships so they could get them earlier. Almost nobody did not drive when they were able. Nowadays though....
