How declare a static method?


I was wondering for classes that extend Class: sap.ui.base.Object, how do you declare static methods?

For example, given the Dog class definition below, how would I add a static method getStaticBark() ?

I would like to call the static method as follows: my.Dog.getStaticBark();


//Dog Class Definition

sap.ui.base.Object.extend('my.Dog', {

getBark: function () {

return "bark";


});//end class

thanks for any help.

    Hi Phong

    Theres a few different ways you can create static methods, below is an example

    (function () {
        sap.ui.base.Object.extend('my.Dog', {
            getBark: function () {
                return "bark";
        }); //End Class
        var _instance;
        my.Dog.getInstance = function () {
            if (!_instance) {
                _instance = new my.Dog();
            return _instance;
        my.Dog.getStaticBark = function () {
           this.bark = "woof woof"
           return this.bark;
    my.Dog.getInstance().getBark(); >> bark
    my.Dog.getStaticBark() >> woof woof
