Thread: Using same parameters but different functiosn? Allowed or not?

  1. #1

    Default Using same parameters but different functiosn? Allowed or not?

    I have made a class here that has two methods. As you guys can notice, in my two methods that I made, I have listed some arugments in there with parameters. My question is that the variables im using in first method, can they be identical on my second method? Is this ok to do?

    public class StudentScore
    {
    	private int math;
    	private int science;
    	private int calc;
    	private int history;
    	private int pe;
     
    	//Make a constructor
    	public StudentScore()
    	{
    		math=40;
    		science=40;
    		calc=40;
    		history=40;
    		pe=40;
     
    	}
     
    	public void getscore(int m_score,int s_score,int c_score,int h_score,int P_score)
    	{
    		math=m_score;
    		science=s_score;
    		calc=c_score;
    		history=h_score;
    		pe=P_score;
     
     
    	}
     
    	public int Scores(int m_score,int s_score,int c_score, int h_score,int P_score)

    Hi,

    Of course, you can use its not a problem. But if you are using the same method name with the same arguments had a problem for that you have to study method overloading concept.

    Thanks,

    Yes. It is completely Ok. The arguments that you pass in a method have a local scope, that means they are available only till that method is alive(running) and only to that method and are finished as soon as the method is finished.

    I hope your doubt is cleared.
