Hiding inherited properties from baseclass users

I have a baseclass that has a Event property such as OnRead.  However a sub-class I need to write must disallow the user of this class to not change the OnRead event.  The easiest way would seem to redeclare the event property as private, but that does not seem to work.

You can only move properties/methods of an object into a more public area, but not backwards. Otherwise, the whole object model would not work.
To make the OnRead event working like you want, override the property like

  property OnRead: TNotifyEvent read FOnRead;

to make it read-only. Even if it is published it is not visible in object inspector anymore, and you cannot change its value.
