The procedural code in a method is executed by invoking the method with an INVOKE statement, an inline method invocation or
referencing a verb-signature, or
referencing an object property. The method implementation that is bound to the invocation depends on the class, at runtime, of the object on which the method is invoked. In particular, it is not necessarily the class specified statically in the definition of the object reference; it is the class of the actual object referenced at runtime that is used in resolving a method invocation to a particular method implementation.
If an invocation specifies the object using an object reference, then:
If an invocation specifies the object using a class name, the factory object of the specified class is used as the object on which the method is invoked, and the method invocation will resolve to a factory method.
Method resolution proceeds by applying the first one of the following rules that is applicable:
