Can Public be declared more than once.

Dear Experts,

I have some code on EE that i have put in the code-secion.
you see that the word Public has been declared twice.
Can this be done?, or is it an error and it has to be Published!

I've compiled the class above and didn't get any errors. I didn't understand why public has been declared twice?

There is no problem to declare methods and properties under the same public section.

i changed published to public

you can declare private, protected, public, published as many times as you like

this is usually done when in test or draft stage
afterwards the sections are combined when doing code cleanup
