tosTring method override

Posted on by 75


There is a class with few fields: List(types::record), PurchId, Amount, Status. I want to override tostring() method so that it returns current state of the class object, for example:

    recIdStr  = listEnumerator.current().RecId;

return strfmt("%1; %2; %3; %4", PurchId, Amount, Status, recIdStr);

I'm gonna use this method in my unit test cases:

this.assertEquals("expected state", myClass.toString());

Tell me please, what are the troubles that may be committed by this solution?

    I didnt face troubles. I saw similar code in C# projects. But i will probably make own method.

    I don't see any troubles, but did you face some? Or why are you asking?

    On the other hand, I don't understand why you want to override the toString() method for this - can't you just add your own method?
