Interface reimplementation

Frans points out that in the current version of VB.NET you can’t re-implement an interface that your base class implements. Although reimplementing a base interface isn’t a common scenario, there are some times (such as the one that Frans outlines) where it is needed.

      Unfortunately, Larry, I don’t know the answer to your question. However, all is not lost. The MSDN Visual Basic developer center ( contains a number of resources that you can probably use to get your question answered. It has links to articles on VB as well as the knowledge base (KB), which contains answers to many common questions. It also has pointers to the public newsgroups which are monitored by many helpful MVPs who will probably be glad to help you get your question answered. Thanks!
