...create a base class with a non-reference counted implementation of IUnknown?
Autor: P. Below
[ Print tip ]  

Tip Rating (2):  
     


If I want automatic garbage collection with interfaces, I use
TInterfacedObject as base class. What should I use,
if I don't want automatic destruction?
is there a similar common base class or do I
have to implement the IInterface methods myself?

I use this one:{== BaseNonRefcountIntfObjU
===========================================}
{: This unit provides a base class with a non-reference counted
implementation of IUnknown.
