Highlights implicit ByRef modifiers in user code.
Inspection type: CodeQualityIssues
VBA parameters are implicitly ByRef, which differs from modern VB (VB.NET) and most other programming languages which are implicitly ByVal. So, explicitly identifing VBA parameter mechanisms (the ByRef and ByVal modifiers) can help surface potentially unexpected language results. The inspection does not flag an implicit parameter mechanism for the last parameter of Property mutators (Let or Set). VBA applies a ByVal parameter mechanism to the last parameter in the absence (or presence!) of a modifier. Exception: UserDefinedType parameters must always be passed as ByRef
The following quick-fixes are available for this inspection:
Each example is a self-contained MCVE showing the feature in a single specific scenario.
Module1by default, these are general-purpose standard procedural modules.
Class1by default, these modules define the default interface for an object of that type.
VB_PredeclaredIdattribute set to
True(with or without a
@Interfaceannotation) whose default interface is not a class type intended to be instantiated.
