You have declared <name> to be abstract, but the compiler has found a definition for the method in the source file. It is illegal to provide a definition for an abstract declaration.
program Produce; type Base = class procedure Foundation; virtual; abstract; end; procedure Base.Foundation; begin end; begin end.
Abstract methods cannot be defined. An error will appear at the point of Base.Foundation when you compile this program.
program Solve; type Base = class procedure Foundation; virtual; abstract; end; Derived = class (Base) procedure Foundation; override; end; procedure Derived.Foundation; begin end; begin end.
Two steps are required to solve this error. First, you must remove the definition of the abstract procedure which is declared in the base class. Second, you must extend the base class, declare the abstract procedure as an 'override' in the extension, and then provide a definition for the newly declared procedure.
