Good Morning, everybody,
        I am new to object pascal. I have written a class and make one of
its procedure e.g. MyProcedure virtual. Could anybody tell me whether in
the inherent class, instead of overriding the procedure, I can inherit
the source code of the original MyProceudre in the new MyProcedure body of
the inherent class and then add some new codes. I know this can been done
in C++. Thank you very much.Wish you a enjoyous day. ;)

Here is what I think you are asking and here is what you would
do.  I will show via example.  I will create two classes and demonstrate the inheritance I think you are looking for:

CThing1 = class
  procedure DoSomething; virtual;
end;

CThing2 = class(CThing1)
  procedure DoSomething; override;
end;

procedure CThing1.DoSomething;
begin
  {your code here}
end;

procedure CThing2.DoSomething;
begin
  inherited DoSomething;
  {your new code here}
end;

The KEY here is the 'inherited' command.  It will call all the commands that you wrote in the original (inherited) procedure.  You can place this anywhere.  If you want them to be exceuted last, then put the command last in the overridden procedure.  If you want them to be excuted first, put the inherited command first in the overridden procedure.

You do this thing all the time when you inherit from built-in Delphi objects and have to override the Create and Destroy methods.  You want to add in some of your own code, but still want the original method to allocate all the memory and stuff it would originally do.

Hope this helps.
