Implements (Visual Basic)
Indicates that a class or structure member is providing the implementation for a member defined in an interface.
The Implements keyword is not the same as the. You use the Implements statement to specify that a class or structure implements one or more interfaces, and then for each member you use the Implements keyword to specify which interface and which member it implements.
If a class or structure implements an interface, it must include the Implements statement immediately after theor , and it must implement all the members defined by the interface.
In a derived class, you can reimplement an interface member that the base class has already implemented. This is different from overriding the base class member in the following respects:
The base class member does not need to beto be reimplemented.
You can reimplement the member with a different name.
The Implements keyword can be used in these contexts:
