This is my oops question.
This is my base class
public class BaseClass
public int i = 10;
public int x = 30;
public string str = "Hello";
public virtual string Hello()
return "Hello of base class called";
This is my child class
public class ChildClass : BaseClass
public int i = 20;
public int z = 90;
public override string Hello()
return "Hello of child class called";
I have noticed that following works fine
BaseClass baseObject = new ChildClass();
and if I enter baseObject, then only members of BaseClass are shown
- Can someone provide me some advice on a circumstance in which a developer needs to do something like BaseClass baseObject = new ChildClass();?
- Why are my child member variables not accessible through this baseObject if my BaseClass object has a reference to my child class object?
