Used to overload the ^ operator, providing custom functionality.


Create an Operator_PowerRight function in a class to specify the functionality of the ^ operator for that class when the Self instance is on the right.

In the function, the other operand is passed as a parameter and is raised to the power specified by the Self instance.

The ordinary (left) methods are always preferred; the Right version is used only if there is no legal left version.

Sample code

Using the Vector class (see Operator Add) with two Integer elements, x and y, we define an Operator_Power function that raises the sum of the Self instance to the power of the passed instance.

Function Operator_PowerRight(lhs As Vector) As Integer
  Var a, b As Integer
  a = Self.x + Self.y
  b = lhs.x + lhs.y
  Return b ^ a
End Function
