2. Abstract Class / Abstract Member

An abstract class member is a member that is specified in a class but not implemented. Classes that inherit from the class will have to implement the abstract member. Abstract members are a technique for ensuring a common interface with descendant classes. An abstract class is a class you cannot instantiate. A pure abstract class is a class with only abstract members.

4. An Introduction to Object Orientation Overview and introduction to object orientation. When you analyze, design, and code in an OO way, you "think" about objects and their interaction. This type of thinking is more like real life where you naturally think about how "this object" relates to "that object". Classes represent the "design" of an existing object. The values or properties of an existing object is it's current state. When designing classes, OO supports many features like inheritance (like real-life where you inherit your parents characteristics), encapsulation (hiding data), and polymorphism (the ability of one thing to act like another or in different ways).

6. Array A data type that is a collection of variables (much like a table is a collection of fields). There are two types: fixed and resizable. A fixed array has a predetermined--by the programmer--number of elements. A resizable does not; therefore you need to set its size before using it.

12. Black Box The term black box refers to not being able to see what is within the box. For example, in coding, you do not need to concern yourself with the details of what happens when you call a method, you simply use the method, the black box, to do the thing you wanted it to do. This is also called encapsulation.

16. Class Constructor

Constructors are called when you instantiate an object from a class. This is where you can initialize variables and put code you wish executed each time the class is created. When you initially set the member fields and properties of an object, you are initializing the state of the object. The state of an object is the values of all it's member fields and properties at a given time.

17. Class Destructor

A special class method called when an object instance of a class is destroyed. With some languages they are called when the object instance goes out of scope, with some languages you specifically have to call the destructor in code to destroy the object, and others use a garbage collector to dispose of object instances at specific times.

Desctructors are commonly used to free the object instance but with languages that have a garbage collector object instances are disposed of when appropriate. Either way, destructors or their equivalent are commonly used to free up resources allocated in the class constructor.

18. Class Helper

A. In Dephi, class helpers allow you to extend a class without using inheritance. With a class helper, you do not have to create and use a new class descending from a class but instead you enhance the class directly and continue using it as you always have (even just with the DCU).

B. In general terms, developers sometimes use the term to refer to any class that helps out another class.

19. Class Visibility Specifiers In OOP languages, members of a class have a specific scope that indicates visibility. Standard visibility includes private, protected, and public. Private members are usable by the defining class only (fully encapsulated). They are invisible outside of the class except by friendly classes. Protected members are usable by the defining class and descendant classes only (plus friendly classes). Public members are usable wherever its class can be referenced.

20. Code Contract

A.k.a. Class Contract and Design by Contracts.

A contract with a method that must be true upon calling (pre) or exiting (post). A pre-condition contract must be true when the method is called. A post-condition contract must be true when exiting. If either are not true, an error is raised. For example, you can use code contracts to check for the validity of input parameters, and results

An invariant is also a code contract which validates the state of the object required by the method.

21. Composition A composite relationship means that a class cannot exist by itself. It must exist as a member of another class. A composite relationship is indicated by a solid line with a solid diamond head pointing to the part class. Alternatively, you can show this relationship graphically with the part class nested in the whole class.

26. Event Handler

In computer programming, an event handler is part of event driven programming where the events are created by the framework based on interpreting inputs. Each event allows you to add code to an application-level event generated by the underlying framework, typically GUI triggers such as a key press, mouse movement, action selection, and an expired timer. In addition, events can represent data changes, new data, etc. Specifically, an event handler is an asynchronous callback subroutine that handles inputs received in a program.

A custom event is a programmer created event. For example, you can contrast an event handler with a member event, an OOP concept where you add an event to a class.

27. General Info About CBD

 Cannabidiol oil, or CBD oil for short, is steadily gaining popularity, and there are more and more companies offering this and other various products containing hemp extract. What is CBD oil good for, how to choose where to buy it, is it safe, are there any legal restrictions? Those are the important questions, and this website was created specifically to answer them and many more. You will find brief answers below, and the more detailed information is available in our reviews of the companies that manufacture and sell CBD products. Providing trustworthy feedback and an overview of such websites is our primary goal.
What Does CBD Do?
CBD has many applications due to its soothing properties, similar to other cannabinoids but without any consequences of psychoactive nature. In other words, it won’t make you high. So, this is basically the answer to the question “Is CBD oil safe?” People are using it to treat chronic pains, sleep disorders, anxiety, diabetes, and other conditions. One of the benefits of this extract is that it can be ingested in various ways, and you can choose which one is the most convenient for you and brings the best results.
If you are wondering how to use CBD oil for pain, there are several options. You can take it directly by putting a certain number of drops under your tongue or as a supplement in your regular food. Since companies usually offer tinctures available in various flavors, it makes perfect sense that one would want to try them as is, as well as mix them with some other food or drinks.
Other popular CBD oil uses are possible due to it being produced as vape juice, gummy bears, topicals, pet treats, sprays, etc. There seems to be no end to creativity in terms of delivering cannabinoid products to customers, and the effects can be quite different, so before you go and order all the available options to test on your own, look for our reviews to see whether it makes sense to do so with a particular company.
Is CBD Oil Legal?
Another thing many people who are interested in CBD would like to know is whether it is legal to sell and buy those products, especially in those states where marijuana is illegal. If you visit sites that have CBD oil for sale, you will notice that most of them offer delivery to all 50 states of the US. How is that possible then?
To answer this question, we first need to learn how is CBD oil made. Not the entire process, no. All you need to know is that there are three types of cannabinoid products:
⦁ those that contain strictly CBD are called isolate and are legal in all states;
⦁ full spectrum oil contains THC among other cannabinoids, only allowed in states where marihuana is legalized;
⦁ broad spectrum oil is almost identical to the previous type, only it lacks THC (or its content is within the allowed percentage of 0.3%), which also makes it legal in all states.
Where Can I Find the Best CBD Oil Prices?
Besides the specific cannabinoids in the product, it’s crucial to know that there are no other substances, and the purity levels are observed. Unfortunately, the industry is relatively new and not regulated yet, therefore, how can you know that the CBD oil for anxiety you bought on the website promising high potency at lower prices is real?
Companies that are concerned about their reputation and are really eager to provide high-quality CBD oil conduct third-party lab testing and make it possible for everyone to check the results for testing that batch on the Internet. What should you do if you don’t quite understand those results?
That’s what we are here for. We have people with medical background and working experience who will make sense of it all and provide the conclusion for our reviews. So if you need CBD for sleep deprivation, depression, or other relevant issues, you can start by reading our reviews and feedback left by other customers. Trust us, you will be buying your own CBD products from reliable manufacturers in no time.

28. How to check what BDE version is installed.

Q. I've updated my BDE from version 5.01 to version 5.2.0.2 but the About BDE Administrator dialog still shows version 5.01?

A. Your update may have taken. Updates typically just replace the DLLs the BDE uses so you may have the latest installed.

Version Information
To see what version of the BDE engine you "actually" have installed, you need to look at the Version Information from within the BDE Administrator. Select Object | Version Information... to see the DLL version numbers

29. Inheritance

The concept of a class makes it possible to define subclasses that share some or all of the main class characteristics. This is called inheritance. Inheritance also allows you to reuse code more efficiently. In a class tree, inheritance is used to design classes vertically. (You can use Interfaces to design classes horizontally within a class tree.) With inheritance, you are defining an "is-a" relationship (i.e. a chow is-a dog). Analysts using UML call this generalization where you generalize specific classes into general parent classes.

30. Inline Routines

Instead of calling a routine, you move the code from the routine itself and expand it in place of the call. In addition to manual inlining, some languages support automatic inlining where the compiler or some other pre-compiler decides when to inline a code routine. Also, some languages allow for developer defined inlining where the developer can suggest and/or force the inlining of a code routine. Inlining can optimize your code for speed by saving a call and return, and parameter management.

31. Installing BDE using Merge Modules The new and "approved" way to install the BDE is by way of mege modules. This is quite a bit different than the traditional ways of using a pre-made program, or incorporating BDE Cab files (from, say, your Delphi installation). Caveat: This is new news for me, and I don't claim to know or understand everything there is to know on this topic but I do have some helpful findings for you.

32. Interface

An element of coding where you define a common set of properties and methods for use with the design of two or more classes.

Both interfaces and abstract classes are types of abstraction. With interfaces, like abstract classes, you cannot provide any implementation. However, unlike abstract classes, interfaces are not based on inheritance. You can apply an Interface to any class in your class tree. In a real sense, interfaces are a technique for designing horizontally in a class hierarchy (as opposed to inheritance where you design vertically). Using interfaces in your class design allows your system to evolve without breaking existing code.

35. Member Field

Also known as a Class Field.

A class variable defined with a specific class visibility, usually private visibility. A member property is different than a member field. A member property uses a member field to store values through accessor methods (getters and setters). For example, it is common to use a private member field to store the current value of a property. The current values of all the class member fields is the current state of the object.

36. Member Method

Also known as a Class Method.

A code routine that belongs to the class or an object instance (an instance of the class). Methods that belong to the class are called class methods or static methods. Methods that belong to an object instance are called instance methods, or simply methods.

When a method returns a value, it is a function method. When no value is returned (or void), it is a procedure method.

Methods frequently use method parameters to transfer data. When one object instance calls another object instance using a method with parameters, you call that messaging.

37. Method Overriding

Where you define or implement a virtual method in a parent class and then replace it in a descendant class.

When you decide to declare a method as virtual, you are giving permission to derived classes to extend and override the method with their own implementation. You can have the extended method call the parent method's code too.

In most OO languages you can also choose to hide a parent method. When you introduce a new implementation of the same named method with the same signature without overriding, you are hiding the parent method.

40. Overloading

Types of overloading include method overloading and operator overloading.

Method Overloading is where different functions with the same name are invoked based on the data types of the parameters passed or the number of parameters. Method overloading is a type of polymorphism and is also known as Parametric Polymorphism.

Operater Overloading allows an operator to behave differently based on the types of values used. For example, in some languages the + operator is used both to add numbers and to concatenate strings. Custom operator overloading is sometimes referred to as ad-hoc polymorphism.

41. Partial Class

A partial class, or partial type, is a class that can be split into two or more source code files and/or two or more locations within the same source file. Each partial class is known as a class part or just a part. Logically, partial classes do not make any difference to the compiler. The compiler puts the class together at compile time and treats the final class or type as a single entity exactly the same as if all the source code was in a single location.

42. Pointers / References

A pointer is a variable type that allows you to refer indirectly to another object. Instead of holding data, a pointer holds the address to data -- the address of another variable or object. You can change the address value a pointer points to thus changing the variable or object the pointer is pointing to.

A reference is a type of pointer that cannot change and it must always point to a valid storage (no nulls).

43. Polymorphism

A coding technique where the same named function, operator, or object behaves differently depending on outside input or influences. Usually implemented as parameter overloading where the same named function is overloaded with other versions that are called either with a different type or number of parameters. Polymorphism is a general coding technique and other specific implementations are common such as inheritance, operator overloading, and interfaces.

A value directly written into the source code of a computer program (as opposed to an identifier like a variable or constant). Literals cannot be changed. Common types of literals include string literals, floating point literals, integer literals, and hexidemal literals. Literal strings are usually either quoted (") or use an apostrophe (') which is often referred to as a single quote. Sometimes quotes are inaccurately referred to as double quotes.

52. Static Class / Static Member

A static member is a member you can have access to without instantiating the class into an object. For example, you can read and write static properties and call static methods without ever creating the class. Static members are also called class members (class methods, class properties, etc.) since they belong to the class and not to a specific object. A static class is a class that contains only static members. In the UML, these classes are described as utility classes.

56. Web, Desktop, or Hybrid: Which is the best choice?

The web has "grown up" to the point that many people now feel that it is THE way to deploy virtually everything. However, it is still primarily a document-based interface. Others believe that desktop applications are superior because they can utilize all the power of an operating system. This needn't be a debate because understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each can make it quite simple to identify the ideal deployment technology. There is also "a third way": utilize a web service to serve up data for your desktop application.
