    Hi all,
    I have a function in a class that makes a connection to mysql:

    Code:
    public function Connect($server=$this->server, $username=$this->username,$password=$this->password)
    The $server, $username and $password arguments are optional, as they are set with default values at the constructor, and I want the arguments to be equal to the variables defined in the constructor if they are not defined in the function call. The code above returns a parse error.

    Any suggestions on how to do this?

    Many thanks,
    Andy
