Here, in the inheritance, we will show the protected member.Program :
Below is the source code for explaining the inheritance with the protected member. The program given is compiled and successfully executed.
'VB.net program to demonstrate the inheritance
'with the protected member.
Module Module1 Class Sample1 Protected Sub Fun1() Console.WriteLine("Sample1.Fun1() called") End Sub End Class Class Sample2 Inherits Sample1 Sub Fun2() Fun1() Console.WriteLine("Sample2.Fun2() called") End Sub End Class Sub Main() Dim obj As New Sample2() obj.Fun2() End Sub End Module
We created a Module1 module in the program above. We built two classes here, Sampl1 and Sample2. Here, Sample1 is Sample2's parent class. But Sample1 includes a method that is protected and can be accessed within the Sample2 class. But we're unable to access the same method with the Sample2 class object.
Finally, we built a Main() function, it's the program's entry point, here we created the Sample2 object and called fun2() method with the Sample2 class object.
