Compiler Warning C4694

Error Message

'class_1': a sealed abstract class cannot have a base-class 'base_class'

An abstract and sealed class cannot inherit from a reference type; a sealed and abstract class can neither implement the base class functions nor allow itself to be used as a base class.

For more information, see abstract (Visual C++), sealed, and Classes and Structs (Managed).


The following sample generates C4694.

// C4694.cpp
// compile with: /c /clr
ref struct A {};
ref struct B sealed abstract : A {};   // C4694
