Overriding class members
Base class or parent class properties and methods can be overridden in the child class or extended class.
Defining the class properties and methods with the same name as parent class in the child class will override the class members.
Overriding class member example
In below example,
The parent class has the method display().
display() method is re-defined in the child class, which will override the parent class method.
c is the handle to the child class, because of override calling c.display will call display method of the child class, not the parent class.
class parent_class; bit [31:0] addr; function display(); $display("Addr = %0d",addr); endfunction endclass class child_class extends parent_class; bit [31:0] data; function display(); $display("Data = %0d",data); endfunction endclass module inheritence; initial begin child_class c=new(); c.addr = 10; c.data = 20; c.display(); end endmodule
Data = 20
