This is called an INTERFACE but not a CLASS INTERFACE. Please provide simple example on CLASS INTERFACE.

An interface class can contain declarations for functions, events, and properties. All interface members have public accessibility. An interface can also contain static data members, functions, events, and properties, and these static members must be defined in the interface.

An interface class defines how a class may be implemented. An interface is not a class and classes can only implement interfaces. When a class defines a function declared in an interface, the function is implemented, not overridden. Therefore, name lookup does not include interface members.

A class or struct that derives from an interface must implement all members of the interface. When implementing interface name you must also implement the interfaces in the base_interface list.
