So ExecuteFunc("") doesn't work... How can i do that?
 
You would need to do:
JASS:
call ExecuteFunc("s__Quest_Death")

Add the same prefix "s__Quest_" to the other function names, and then it should execute. However, you cannot execute normal methods. They have to be static for it to work properly. (However, that means that you need to access this through other means [the instance])

Which means that you have to attach data to the trigger somehow. I recommend that you use hashtables. Here is an example of attaching data to the trigger:
JASS:
struct Example
    // just an example, this doesn't really do anything special
    private static hashtable Hash = InitHashtable() // you can use any hashtable
    unit ex
    real speed
    
    static method onDeath takes nothing returns nothing
        local trigger  t        = GetTriggeringTrigger()
        local thistype this     = LoadInteger( Hash, GetHandleId(t), 0 ) // load it in the "actions"
        call SetUnitMoveSpeed( this.ex, this.speed ) // now you can use "this" as if in a normal method
        set t = null
    endmethod

    static method create takes unit u, real vel returns thistype
        local thistype this   = thistype.allocate()
        local trigger  test   = CreateTrigger()
        set this.ex    = u
        set this.vel   = speed
        call SaveInteger( Hash, GetHandleId(test), 0, this )  // save your instance to the handle id of your trigger
        call TriggerRegisterUnitEvent( test, u, EVENT_UNIT_DEATH )
        call TriggerAddAction( test, function thistype.onDeath )
        set test = null
    endmethod
endstruct

Thank you, i'll try this!

JASS:
static method create takes unit questGiver, integer rewardXp, integer rewardGold returns thistype
      local thistype this   = thistype.allocate()
      local trigger  eventTrigger   = CreateTrigger()
      set this.rewardXp    =rewardXp
      set this.rewardGold   = rewardGold
      set this.questGiver   = questGiver
      call SaveInteger( Hash, GetHandleId(eventTrigger), 0, this )  // save your instance to the handle id of your trigger
      call TriggerRegisterUnitEvent( eventTrigger, questGiver, EVENT_UNIT_ATTACKED )
      call TriggerAddAction( eventTrigger, function thistype.onTalk )
      set eventTrigger = null
   endmethod

Throws an error: "Missing return" :goblin_jawdrop:

return this -> everything okey.
Thanks, it works!!!

How to "clear" hash value? I want to recreate trigger "t" and save it to the hash.

method onFinish can't use this.* somewhy... everything becomes null.

i think i did something wrong here:
JASS:
static method onTalk takes nothing returns nothing
      local trigger  t        = GetTriggeringTrigger()
      local thistype this     = LoadInteger( Hash, GetHandleId(t), 0 ) // load it in the "actions"
      call DestroyTrigger(t)
      set t = CreateTrigger()
      call CreateFloatText(this.stringBegin, 100, 100, 100, GetUnitX(this.questGiver), GetUnitY(this.questGiver)) // works!
      call SaveInteger( Hash, GetHandleId(t), 0, this )  // save your instance to the handle id of your trigger
      call TriggerRegisterUnitEvent( t, this.questFinisher, EVENT_UNIT_ATTACKED )
      call TriggerAddAction( t, function thistype.onFinish )
      set this.questGiver = null 
      set t = null
    endmethod

method onFinish is calling okay, but loading "this" doesn't works there... Help pls!

      call DestroyTrigger(t)
      set this.questFinisher = null
      set t = null
    endmethod

BJ debug returns 0 (null)... Look like saveinteger saves null trigger... but:
JASS:
local thistype this     = LoadInteger( Hash, GetHandleId(t), 0 ) // load it in the "actions"
      call DestroyTrigger(t)
      set t = null
      set t = CreateTrigger()
      call CreateFloatText(this.stringBegin, 100, 100, 100, GetUnitX(this.questGiver), GetUnitY(this.questGiver))
      call BJDebugMsg(I2S(GetHandleId(t)))
      call SaveInteger( Hash, GetHandleId(t), 0, this )  // save your instance to the handle id of your trigger
Looks okay :goblin_jawdrop:

Or just use the name field

JASS:
call ExecuteFunc(thistype.Death.name)

Then again, why would you prefer ExecuteFunc over TriggerExecute/Evaluate or the vJass abbreviations call thistype.Death.execute()/evaluate()?

Okay, i'll try this...

evaluate() - > don't know what is it)))

TriggerExecute - > i don't use conditions

Evaluate - > don't know what is it

call thistype.Death.execute() -> is it possible? looks strange!

i'll try everything) thank you
