Solution :

I had also faced a same issue in the past. I did a lot of research on it and found a solution on it. Since the Circle inherits from the Oval, when you create the Circle a default constructor for Oval is called in this case. Since that constructor accepts only 2 parameters, you need to explicitly call a constructor and provide them as shown below:

class Circle : Oval
    private double rad;
    public Circle(double Circle_Radius) : base(0, 0) // change to your values
      rad = Circle_Radius;  

So the Circle is an Oval, so it has a major_axis and minor_axis values. It seems you just did not provide them as they are very much required values to create the Oval.

Of course you can add the default public constructor for your Oval with no parameters, but that makes you to create the Oval with no major_axis and minor_axis and both seem required by a only constructor in a current status of your code. So, you need to rethink how to design the classes.

You have a constructor which accepts 2 parameters. You must write something like:

new ErrorEventArg(errorMsv, lastQuery)

It's less code and simpler to read.


Or, in order for your way to perform, you can attempt writing a default constructor for ErrorEventArg which would have no parameters, like this:

public ErrorEventArg() {}

In the constructor of

 public class ErrorEventArg : EventArgs

You have to include "base" as follows:

  public ErrorEventArg(string errorMsg, string lastQuery) : base (string errorMsg, string lastQuery)
        ErrorMsg = errorMsg;
        LastQuery = lastQuery;

Your MenuModel class has a single constructor, which needs a DbContext parameter:

public MenuModel(DBContext context)

You are attempting to create an example of that class by calling the constructor without passing any parameters:

var menuModel = new NewWebsite_Site_2018.Pages.View.ViewBar_Info.MenuModel();

The compiler can't trace a constructor which doesn't accepts any parameters, and hence it generates the compiler error from your question.

You either require to pass the parameter to the constructor:

var menuModel = new NewWebsite_Site_2018.Pages.View.ViewBar_Info.MenuModel(new DBContext());

or include a parameterless constructor to the class:

public MenuModel() : this(new DBContext())

Problem: When should I use an interface and when should I use a base class? Should it always be an interface if I don't want to actually define a base implementation of the methods? If I have a Dog and Cat class. Why would I want to implement IPet instead of PetBase? ... IBarks (IMakesNoise?), because those can be placed on a pet by pet basis, but I don't understand which to use for a generic Pet.
