Virtual table creation

sourabhmehta asked:

Open original thread
Hi All,

I know there are so many existing forums on the same topic. But they are not clear.
so my question is..
When is the virtual table created in c++ whether compile-time or run-time?

In few of the forums it is mentioned that,at compile time only the layout of the table gets created (what does it means) and at run time it gets entries in the table.

Can someone give me brief overview of this?

Thanks in advance
