Pass A Delegate Into A Constructor Of An Abstract Class From A Descendant's Constructor?

Feb 15, 2010

I have an abstract class which requires a delegate to function. I pass the delegate into the constructor. Now that I have a non default constructor I need to call the abstract class's constructors from the concrete class which means that I need to use MyBase.New(...). I have included a quick example below.

Public MustInherit Class BaseClass
Public Delegate Sub WorkMethod()
Private _Work As WorkMethod


I have tried to do this but I keep getting the following error: "Implicit reference to object under construction is not valid when calling another constructor".Can I not do what I am trying to do above? I initially had the delegate setup in its own setter method. But then I am creating a deceptive API because it does require a point to a method to work properly.

Static Constructor In .Net?

Feb 9, 2010

I am rewriting a C# class in VB. The C# class has a static constructor in it:

static Class()

which, through the Call Stack, I found is called by the main window's InitializeComponent() method.Everywhere I've looked has told me that the corresponding static constructor in VB is just:Shared Sub New()

but this method is never invoked. Am I creating my VB static constructor right? Is it likely something else that has nothing to do with my static constructor?

<Attribute>: ParamArray In Constructor

Nov 10, 2010

A former co-worker wrote a class in C# that was to be used as an attribute. I'm having to convert his work to VB (yeah, it's pointless and way more work than necessary, but management thinks it's a good idea). Unfortunately I'm having an issue because one of the main properties of the class is an ArrayList which is set with a ParamArray in the constructor. The class looks like this (note I've tried to abstract out the problem, so this is a simplified version of the class only)

<AttributeUsage(AttributeTargets.Field Or AttributeTargets.[Property])> _
Public Class LabelAttribute
Inherits Attribute
Public Sub New()


In the first one, there is just the single label being added. No Problem. In the second one there are 2 different labels being added. Again, no problem. The third one, however, is a problem because it's assuming that the "Description", which is supposed to be the description is instead being interpreted as another label.

This wasn't a problem in C# because it could be set as follows:


Of course this doesn't work in VB because optional parameters aren't referred to by name as they are in C#. As a stopgap I've changed the constructor to allow only a single label like this


But that undermines some of what this class is meant to do. Does anyone know how, or even if I can get the same basic functionality to work in VB?

Think there must be a way to make the existing design work. Imagine this class was built into a library that I could not modify. Would I be forever forbidden from setting Description because of this design?

C# - Why Are Not Allowed To Specify A Constructor In An Interface

Mar 27, 2009

I know that you cannot specify a constructor in an interface in .Net, but why can we not?

It would be really useful for my current project to be able to specify that an 'engine' must be passed in with the constructor, but as I cant, I have to suffice with an XML comment on the class.

Calling Constructor When Using Generics

Mar 9, 2011

I'm not sure if this is possible or not. I have a number of different classes that implement interface IBar, and have constructors that take a couple of values. Rather than create a bunch of almost identical method, is it possible to have a generic method that will create the appropriate constructor?

private function GetFoo(Of T)(byval p1, byval p2) as List(Of IBar)
dim list as new List(Of IBar)
dim foo as T
' a loop here for different values of x
foo = new T(x,p1)
' end of loop
return list
end function

I get:
'New' cannot be used on a type parameter that does not have a 'New' constraint.

Create Application For The BMP Constructor?

Feb 7, 2012

I trying create Application for the BMP Constructor, I already write the code in C# but I can't translate it into VB.NET, because its require pointer, and as far as i know, there are no pointer function in @@ so how I can translate this:

FileStream fs = new FileStream(OJSPathBox.Text, FileMode.Open);
BinaryReader rdr = new BinaryReader(fs);
int width = 555; // its just for example
int height = 555; //its just for example


ptr declaration is using Pointer and I throught, there are no unsafe in, how I can translate to language?

Default Value At Declaration Or In Constructor?

Mar 4, 2011

One would think I'd already know this, but I never really gave it much thought before now. When declaring a member variable for a class, is it better to set the default value at the declaration

Private m_strMyVariable As String = ""
Or is it better to do it in the constructor
Private m_strMyVariable As String


Should I maybe always specify a value at declaration, even if it's Nothing, and just override that value in the constructor(s) as needed? Or is it situation specific? If so, a really quick rundown of which situations might warrant which treatment would be nice.

Inherit A Sub New (Constructor) With Parameters?

Apr 25, 2009

In the code below I recieve the compile error "Error Too many arguments to 'Public Sub New()'" on the "Dim TestChild As ChildClass = New ChildClass("c")". I do not recieve it on "TestChild.Method1()" even though they are both on the base class I am inheriting from.

Public Class BaseClass
Public ReadOnly Text As String
Public Sub New(ByVal SetText As String)[code].....

As suggested below but I do not have to do that for Method 1 or other inherited methods and I am looking for the cleanest code possible. This may be a limitation in the system with inheriting parameterized New statements but I can not find it documented anywhere. If it is required then I would like to see the documentation.
