Hi,

I have a base and derived class like:

    class Base {
        Base();
        Base(int x, int y);
    };

I have a derived class like:

    class Derived : public Base {
        Derived();
    };

If I understand correctly, Derived's constructor will call Base's constructor automatically. I want Derived to call Base's alternate constructor, something like:

      class Derived : public Base {
          Derived(int x, int y)
          {
               Base(x,y);
               // rest of my stuff
           }
      };

how does that work?

Thanks
