Abstraction (ASP Classic and VB.Net Cross Reference Guide)

Abstraction

[Other Languages] 

General Info: Abstract Class / Abstract Member

An abstract class member is a member that is specified in a class but not implemented. Classes that inherit from the class will have to implement the abstract member. Abstract members are a technique for ensuring a common interface with descendant classes. An abstract class is a class you cannot instantiate. A pure abstract class is a class with only abstract members.

Languages Focus

Abstraction is supported at various levels with each language. A language could enforce abstraction at the class level (either enforcing a no-instantiation rule or a only abstract members rule), and with class members (member methods and/or properties).

ASP Classic:   Not Supported
VB.Net:   MustInherit, MustOverride, Overrides

VB.Net supports abstract class members and abstract classes using the MustInherit and MustOverride modifiers.

An abstract class is indicated with a MustInherit modifier and is a class with one or more abstract members and you cannot instantiate an abstract class. However, you can have additional implemented methods and properties.

An abstract member is either a method (implicitly virtual), property, indexer, or event in an abstract class. You can add abstract members ONLY to abstract classes using the MustOverride keyword. Then you override it in a descendant class with Overrides.

Syntax Example:
Public MustInherit Class Cyborg
  Public MustOverride Sub Speak(ByVal pMessage As String)
End Class

Public Class Series600
  Inherits Cyborg

  Public Overrides Sub Speak(ByVal pMessage As String)
    MessageBox.Show(pMessage)
  End Sub
End Class
