Hey,

I've just started working with Functions in JSL. I am wondering if there is a way to create overload functions similar to C++/C#.

Even if JSL doesn't officially support it, there also may be a way to create pseudo overloads, such as with VBScript using CASE / WHERE. Has anyone tried this?

Thanks!

Solution

There's no overloading; however, you can make arguments optional so that, for instance, f(a) and f(a, b) can call the same function:

f = Function({x, y=0}, sqrt(x * x + y * y));

You can also check the types of the arguments with functions like Is Number() within a nested if(), which sounds like your VB example.
