Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries over the next few weeks. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.
M classes define abstract protocols, or interfaces. Concrete implementations of an interface defined by an M class are provided by derived protocol provider classes.
M classes have the following restrictions:
- They should contain no member data
- They should not contain constructors or destructors, or overloaded operators such as =.
M classes often contain pure virtual functions that define a fully abstract interface. Some M classes implement some or all member functions, though within the restrictions given above.
M classes are the only use of multiple inheritance in Symbian OS.
