C# Error CS0502 – ‘member’ cannot be both abstract and sealed

C# Compiler Error

CS0502 – ‘member’ cannot be both abstract and sealed

Reason for the Error

You’ll get this error in your C# code when you try to declare a class member as both abstract and sealed.

For example, let’s try to compile the below C# code snippet.

using System;
namespace DeveloperPublishNamespace
{
    public abstract class Employee
    {
        public abstract void SetId();
    }
    public class ContractEmployee : Employee
    {
        public abstract sealed override void SetId()
        {

        }
    }
    class Program
    {      
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("No Error");
        }

    }
}

You’ll receive the error code CS0502 because the C# compiler has detected that you have declared the SetId() in the ContractEmployee class as both abstract and sealed.
