What is hiding in CSharp ?

Hiding is also called as Shadowing. This is the concept of Overriding the methods. It is a concept used in the Object Oriented Programming.

public class ClassA {
public virtual void MethodA() {
Trace.WriteLine("ClassA Method");

public class ClassB : ClassA {
public new void MethodA() {
Trace.WriteLine("SubClass ClassB Method");

public class TopLevel {
static void Main(string[] args) {
TextWriter tw = Console.Out;
Trace.Listeners.Add(new TextWriterTraceListener(tw));

ClassA obj = new ClassB();
obj.MethodA(); // Outputs “Class A Method"

ClassB obj1 = new ClassB();
obj.MethodA(); // Outputs “SubClass ClassB Method”
