Object.usageCount Method

Returns the current number of references (the value of the reference counter) that the object has.

When an object is created, its reference counter equals one (1). When a new reference is created, its value increases. As a reference goes out of scope, its value decreases.


public int usageCount()

The current number of references that the object has.

Called

The following example prints the number of references for objA to the output window.

static void Object_UsageCount(Args _args)
{
    Object objA = new Object();
    Object objB;
    ;

    print objA.usageCount();    // Prints 1.

    objB = objA;                // objB is a reference to objA.
    print objA.usageCount();    // prints 2
    pause;
}
