Is it possible to make a class member variable accessible to the public, but not inheritable? in VB.net

Thanks

I don't believe that's possible.  By making a member Public (or Friend or Protected, for that matter), you're allowing any derived classes to inherit the member.  Perhaps if you told us the reasononing behind wanting to make a non-inheritable public member, we suggest work-arounds.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
