Interface and Inheritance

Hi all
I have a calss that derived from IList.
you know that I have to implement methods of IList and make them public.
is it possible to make them private?/
becuase I saw for example in DataTable class that has derived from
IListSource but it hasen't made them public..
I got mixed up about that..
thanks in advance

You can implement the interface 'explicitly'. That way, the IList properties
won't appear unless the IList prefix is entered first.

Hi,

If you are using VS it's very easy, all you have to do is write down the
interface and you will be presented with the option of pressing TAB to
implement the stubs methods, now they are declared implicitely (not with the
prefix IList ) before, so you will have to edit them. When you do so you
will have to remove the public as they are public already

You have:

public class MyList: IList
{
<...>
public int Add(object o)
{ whatever }
<...>
}

---- You change it to:
public class MyList: IList
{
<...>
int IList.Add(objec t o)
{ whatever }
<...>
}

This will hide function Add. Just do it for the rest of IList(including
ICollection and IEnumerable) functions.

Hope it helps,
MuZZy

public interface IThing
{
void DoSomething();
}

public class Thing : IThing
{
void IThing.DoSometh ing()
{
...
}
}

the DoSomething method is marked as private internally and can only be
accessed through an interface reference to a Thing object through IThing :

{
Thing t = new Thing();

t.DoSomething() // this won't compile, DoSomething() is private

IThing it = (IThing) t;
it.DoSomething( ); // this works through the interface only
}

My basic question: If I have a specific interface which I know is going to be implemented by a number of classes, but there is no implementation commonality between them, what is the preferred form for this in Python? In a staticly typed language like c++ or java, I'd describe the interface first, then create the classes eithered derived from that ABC or implementing that interface (same thing really). This was the first thing I...

I'm still trying to figure out concrete reasons to use one over the other. I understand the abstract class can have implementation in its methods and derived classes can only inherit one abstract class. The interface has implied abstract methods/properties and derived classes can inherit multiple interfaces. The interface properties/methods have no implementation. Besides definitions of the two, what are some conceptual reasons to use...

I am puzzled, what is the purpose of an interface? How does it work, what i mean is how does the compiler treats this?

Hai friends, I really wonder, If the interface does not have any definition, Y do we need to use interface. You can then only we can use Multiple inheritance. I really cant understand, Just for declararion y do we need to use interface. Anyhow the method name and definition ll be in the derived class. Instead of that we can do all code in the derived class itself right...? Then y these concept came. If anybody know, please explain me...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
