In this example how can we create constructors with no parameters is this because of the base class?

Steven Parker

i checked the system..Exception Class on msdn and noticed that it has a constructor which doesn't take any parameters

is it only possible to add a constructor to the OutOfBoundsException that doesn't take any parameters because the base system.Exception Class has a constructor that also doesn't take any parameters

:bell: Hi, I was alerted by your tag.

The base class does not limit what kind of constructors your class can have. It's actually quite common for a derived class constructor to take parameters when the base class does not.
