This example uses MParamCount() to get the number of arguments that the Area method in class Rectangle is expecting.  Furthermore, the example sets up a Geometry class with an IdentifyObject() method that uses MParamCount() to collect information about different objects:
X#
 1CLASS Rectangle
 2METHOD Area(x, y) CLASS Rectangle
 3RETURN x*y
 4CLASS Geometry
 5METHOD IdentifyObject(symObject, symMethod);
 6    CLASS Geometry
 7RETURN MParamCount(symObject, symMethod)
 8Function Start()
 9    LOCAL oShapes AS OBJECT
10    ? MParamCount(#Rectangle, #Area)        // 2
11    oShapes := Geometry{}
12    ? "It is a "+NTrim(oShapes:IdentifyObject;
13        (#Rectangle, #Area))+ " dimensional object"
14    // It is a 2 dimensional object
15    RETURN TRUE
