Overriding Inherited Members in VSCode

Hi All,

I'm starting to use VSCode for most of my day to day stuff and there's something that has me stumped. Is there a way to override a method or property that's inherited from a superclass?

AFAIK the InterSystems ObjectScript extension for VS Code doesn't yet implement a convenient way of overriding an inherited method or property. I suggest you use VS Code's 'Report Issue' option from the Help menu to file a Feature Request on the extension. That dialog is a convenient way to route your request to the correct repo.

I love VSCode, but some handy features of IRIS Studio are indeed missing. I keep an instance of the latest InterSystems Studio in a VM to use when things which are missing, but after that I quickly switch back to VSCode and import the code. I really like the integration with Git & Docker.

@Marcel den Ouden please make sure the things you miss have already been reported. And if they haven't, open a new issue for them. One item per issue please, unless items are very closely related. "Maintain social distancing" wink

Thanks for that - glad I wasn't missing something obvious.
