|Illustration of variables of reference types|
On this page we explain what happens in the assignment p1 = p2, where both p1 and p2 are variables of compatible reference types. See the similar example for value types on a later page.
Variables of reference types. The situation before the assignment p1 = p2.
The variables p1 and p2 refer to two points. p1 is assigned to p2.
Variables of reference types. The situation after the assignment p1 = p2.
