Prevent Derivation

[Other Languages] 

Languages Focus

How do you prevent another class from inheriting and/or prevent a class from overriding a member.

Delphi:  "Sealed class" sealed, final

With Delphi, use the sealed keyword to prevent a class from being inherited from and use the final keyword to prevent a method from being overridden.

Syntax Example:
  Robot = class sealed(TObject)
  procedure Speak(pSentence: String); virtual; final;

Make the constructor a private member of the class.
