override_function' : matches base ref class method 'base_class_function', but is not marked 'virtual', 'new' or 'override'; 'new' (and not 'virtual') is assumed

When compiling with /clr, the compiler will not implicitly override a base class function, which means the function will get a new slot in the vtable. To resolve, explicitly specify whether a function is an override.

C4484 is always issued as an error. Use the warning pragma to suppress C4484.

The following sample generates C4484.

// C4484.cpp  
// compile with: /clr  
ref struct A {  
   virtual void Test() {}  
};  
  
ref struct B : A {  
   void Test() {}   // C4484  
};  
  
// OK  
ref struct C {  
   virtual void Test() {}  
   virtual void Test2() {}  
};  
  
ref struct D : C {  
   virtual void Test() new {}  
   virtual void Test2() override {}  
};
