C# newbie question

Hi.  My question is that if I have an Data Access Layer that writes to a DB, then a Rules layer that inherits the DAL, then a presentation layer that inherits the Rules Layer, how can I keep the methods in the DAL hidden from the presentation layer??

Oops sorry. I didn't read your question right... You want to prevent the inheritance of functions (not classes).. My bad.

It cannot be done... Any public method is being inherited by the child class.


The only way I can thing of is that the child class will implement an interface and then then you work with the presenter, you will always work with it using an interface object.

I see. But doesn't the Sealed class eliminated the possibility of any inheritance??? I want the Rules layer to inherit the DAL.  BUT, I do not want the other class, which inherits the Rules Layer to have access to the methods in the DAL...perhaps I am not following sealed closely enough.

Ok sorry I should've been more clear. Thank you and I will try using an interface.

I've looked for a short example on the Internet for you:

And you've been clear enough...  it's just me ending 11 hours of work in front of the computer and visual studio.
(Lucky me, this day is over :-) )
