Hi all. Are constructors part of an instance or static class?

Hi dennis, If I understand your question correctly you are asking whether a constructor is part of the instance of a class or wheter it is the static part of a class. I don�t think it involves the static part of the class, because something being static implies that there is only one, so if a constructor is seen as belonging to the static part of a class every instance of the class would initialise in the same way and that�s not true. I think it is part of the instance of a class, because it involves the 'kick-off' of an instance of every new class by initialising it. Does this help? Gian Franco

Yes I figured it would be part of an instance class, but unlike instance methods (in an instance class), it cannot be inherited. Thanks for your reply Gian. I just needed a sounding board.
