8.5.3 List of functions or methods

This lists either the generic functions with applicable methods for the current class, or the applicable methods for the current class. Items selected in this list can be operated on via the Works > Methods menu, as described in Operations specific to the current function or method. Double-clicking on a function or method displays its source code definition in the Editor, if possible.

Select Methods or Generic Functions from the drop-down list box to choose which type of information to list.

If Include Inherited is checked, generic functions or methods inherited from the superclasses of the current class are displayed.

If Include Accessors is checked, accessor methods/functions are displayed. When Include Accessors is not checked, methods/functions defined by the :readers , :writers and :accessors slot options in defclass are omitted from the display.

You can configure the default settings of these options in the Preferences dialog. To do this raise the dialog as described in Setting preferences, then select Class Browser in the list on the left side and then select the Slots/Functions tab to see the default settings that you can configure.
