Member attributes: SuperClass

This attribute determines the base class of a class member.




The attribute SuperClass determines the immediate ancestor of a particular class member. Accordingly, the class is considered as being derived from the specified ancestor - it inherits all members available in the specified ancestor as well as in all further ancestor classes. Inheritance is a fundamental concept of an object-oriented programming systems.

The class name is composed of two identifiers: the name of the unit containing the class definition and the name of the class itself, both separated by :: (double colon). If the attribute SuperClass is not specified, the affected class is considered as not being derived from any other class.
