An interface is not a class. It is an entity that is defined by the word Interface. An interface has no implementation; it only has the signature or in other words, just the definition of the methods without the body.

Defining an Interface

interface interfaceName

 Differences between Interfaces and Abstract classes 
*An Interface cannot implement methods. 
*An abstract class can implement methods. 

*An Interface can only inherit from another Interface. 
*An abstract class can inherit from a class and one or more interfaces. 

*An Interface cannot contain fields. 
*An abstract class can contain fields. 

*An Interface can contain property definitions. 
*An abstract class can implement a property. 

*An Interface cannot contain constructors or destructors. 
*An abstract class can contain constructors or destructors. 

*An Interface can be inherited from by structures. 
*An abstract class cannot be inherited from by structures. 

*An Interface can support multiple inheritance. 
*An abstract class cannot support multiple inheritance.

using System;
 namespace InterfaceConsoleApplication
    class Program : myInterface //Implement the interface
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Program p1 = new Program();
            p1.display(); //call the method
        //Give funtionality to method who declared in interface
        public void display()
            Console.WriteLine("Interface Method");
    //declare interface
    interface myInterface
        void display();

Output :-

Interface Method

In this example, I have created a interface myInterface using interface keyword and define a method named display().Class Program inherits the myInterface and give full definition to method display() and call by the Program class object p1.
