I have a contructor written as :

public class ABCD{
 Public Employee__c e;
    public ABCD(Employee_c emp){

Now this methodcalled calls another method , which in turn calls another .

My question - How do I access the Employee id (e /emp) in those methods .

In one of the methods , I need to write something like this :

 SELECT fields from Object where Parentid=emp
  • 2
    'e' is Public property of type 'Employee__c' so it should be available to all methods in the class 'ABCD'. Can you share your complete class code plz. – Mahmood Oct 26 '16 at 13:33

    It might be worth your time to run through some of the Apex Trailheads to get a firmer understanding on how apex code operates. – battery.cord Oct 26 '16 at 13:38

I think you made some typo in your code, it should be:

this.e = emp;

If you mean same class, you should just use e - since this is class param:

SELECT fields from Object where Parentid =: e.Id

If you need this in some external method you must pass current instance of your class.

  • The whitespace is just personal preference, some developers prefer it, others do not. I have my own preferences on how I use equals, and it's no less "correct" or "incorrect" than the next. – sfdcfox Oct 26 '16 at 20:12

    @sfdcfox typo (in fact rather mistake) was about wrong variable placing not whitespaces. Orginally it was "this.emp=e;". Anyway it is good that you are pinting it out, at least some people will now know it is just "coding standard" not APEX syntax. Thanks for you comment :) – Artur Kępczyński Oct 28 '16 at 6:45
