Static and Dynamic binding in C++ with Examples (Early and Late binding)

Binding in C++ means associating the call of a function with the definition of that function. There are two types of binding in C++: static and dynamic binding (early and late binding)
Static binding happens at compile-time and dynamic binding happens at run-time.

The main advantage of static binding is that the program runs a little bit faster, and if we use dynamic binding (because binding happens in run-time) our program runs a little bit slower.
The main advantage of dynamic binding is that it is very flexible, and it allows us to decide at run-time which function definition we want to invoke.

Static binding happens by default, and it is achieved via normal function calls, function overloading, or operator overloading.
Dynamic binding is achieved by using virtual functions or function overriding.

Early vs Late Binding, reflection, and type dynamic in C#

Early vs Late Binding, reflection, and type dynamic in C#Most script languages use late binding, and most compiled languages use early binding; C## can use both. In this post we will explore early & late binding in C#, with theory and samples.

Early Binding

A binding is called an early binding, compiler time binding or static type binding when the target method is found during compile time (the code that will call the method is also created during compile time). If the required method doesn’t exist, an error is issued during compilation.

Whether there is an extra step to find the method during call time it’s irrelevant. That means, the binding is still considered early independently of if the method is virtual or not.

For example, the next code block uses early binding to call the RandomMethod method of the object EarlyBindingSample, and then the method NotExistingMethod that doesn’t exist. Since the second method doesn’t exists, compiler throws an error:

public class EarlyBindingSample 
	{
		public void RandomMethod()
		{
			//...
		}
	}

	var earlyBinding = new EarlyBindingSample();

	/***Existing method***/
	//This is early binding, the method is found during compile time
	earlyBinding.RandomMethod(); 

	/***Non-Existing method***/
	//Method 'NotExistingMethod' does't exist:
	earlyBinding.NotExistingMethod(); 
	//Compiler Error CS1061:
	// 'EarlyBindingSample' does not contain a definition for 'NotExistingMethod' 
	//   and no accessible extension method 'NotExistingMethod' 
	//   accepting a first argument of type 'EarlyBindingSample' could be found 
	//   (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

Dynamic Binding in C++: Explanation, Functions & Implementation

Introduction

This article is going to walk you through the working of dynamic binding in C++. You are expected to have a basic knowledge of the working of inheritance and static binding in C++. This is because some limitations of static binding are removed by dynamic binding. We will show you, along with proper and simple codes, how dynamic binding is useful.

What is Dynamic Binding?

By binding, we generally mean linking one object with another. In terms of programming languages, binding is not very different. It is the linking of a function definition and a function call. But why ‘dynamic’? In simple words, dynamic binding is just delaying the choice or selection of which function to run until its runtime. Using dynamic binding in C++, we choose which function we can execute based on the underlying type of the object.

This flexibility was not afforded to programmers with static binding. The static binding used to happen at compile time and not run time. Additionally, static binding made linkage of function call and definition during compile time, whereas, as you now know, dynamic binding does not do that until run time.
