Override Methods

This dialog lets you define methods to override.

Use Override/Implement Methods from the Source menu or the context menu on a selected type or on a text selection in a type.

The dialog presents all methods that can be overridden from supertypes or implemented from interfaces. Abstract methods or unimplemented methods are selected by default.

The tree view groups methods by the type declaring the method. If more than one type in the hierarchy declare the same method, the method is only shown once, grouped to the first type in the list of supertypes that implements or defines this method.

The flat view shows only methods, sorted alphabetically.

When pressing OK, method stubs for all selected methods are created.
