Here, we can build a Sample1 class then create a new class Sample2 by extending the feature of Sample1 class using the Inherits keyword.Program :
The source code is given below to display the simple inheritance. The program given is compiled and successfully executed.
'VB.net program to demonstrate the simple inheritance.
Module Module1 Class Sample1 Sub Fun1() Console.WriteLine("Sample1.Fun1() called") End Sub End Class Class Sample2 Inherits Sample1 Sub Fun2() Console.WriteLine("Sample2.Fun2() called") End Sub End Class Sub Main() Dim obj As New Sample2() obj.Fun1() obj.Fun2() End Sub End Module
We created a Module1 module in the program above. We built two classes here, Sampl1 and Sample2, where the parent class is Sample1 and the child class is Sample2.
A fun1() method is included in the Sample1 class that prints a text message on the console screen.
The Sample2 class inherits the Sample1 class features, which also includes the fun2() method.
Finally, we created a Main() function, which is the program entry point, here we created the Sample2 class object and named the fun1() and fun2() method, which will print a suitable message on the console screen.
