typing is part of the definition of formal parameters and field symbols in the following statements:
The addition allows generic typing with
and full typing with
In positions where the addition
typing is not necessary, implicit typing
with the generic type
any takes place (if no typing is specified explicitly).
- In classes, the formal parameters of methods or events and field symbols must be typed explicitly. The formal parameters of methods or events of global classes and the formal parameters of function modules are typed in Class Builder or Function Builder. For a typing of system wide visible public interface parameters to be carried out in Function Builder or Class Builder, only the types in ABAP Dictionary may be used.
- More information about typing parameters of function modules can be found under Function Module Interface.
- When formal parameters are typed, the addition
LIKEcan be used to reference formal parameters (in the same procedure) that have already been declared.
