Namespace terminology

Postby augustk on Wed Mar 27, 2019 10:16 am

In the editor tree view, the functions in a namespace script are called "[Methods]". Aren't they simply plain functions or have I missed something?

Regards,
August

Hi August,

They are indeed plain functions (or possibly operators), but in Object Orientation terminology, functions inside objects are traditionally called "methods". See for example here.
