Sealed Class


Sealed class is used to define the inheritance level of a class.


The sealed modifier is used to prevent derivation from a class. An error occurs if a sealed class is specified as the base class of another class.


Some points to remember:  

1.  A class, which restricts inheritance for security reason is declared, sealed class.
2.  Sealed class is the last class in the hierarchy.
3.  Sealed class can be a derived class but can't be a base class.
4.  A sealed class cannot also be an abstract class. Because abstract class has to provide functionality and here we are restricting it to inherit.
