Object-oriented Programming in C#
Specialization, Extension, and Inheritance
Inheritance of methods, properties, and indexers

Methods, properties, and indexers are inherited

  • Methods, properties, and indexers can be redefined in two different senses:

    • Same names and signatures in super- and subclass, closely related meanings (virtual, override)

    • Same names and signatures in super- and subclass, two entirely different meanings (new)

  • A method M in a subclass B can refer to a method M in a superclass A

    • base.M(...)

    • Cooperation, also known as method combination


Operators are inherited. A redefined operator in a subclass will be an entirely new operator.
