If you have received the error below, and are scratching your head over the cause:

Object object not initialised error

Then the answer is to check you have called super() in your constructor. The compilation output will also display a warning to that effect:

Compile warning for not overriding super in constructor

Related notes about extending Object and initialization

Unlike C#, Object is not implicitly extended when creating a new class. You’ll need to ensure that the ‘extends object’ class declaration is included if you want to call methods declared in Object, eg:


Repeating the aforementioned error (and also unlike C#) the base constructor is not implicitly called in X++:

void new()
super(); //base constructor is not called implicitly
