Hi there!,

Is there a way to hide a variable in a child class?

Example (and better description of the problem)

lets asume there is a parent class liek this:

class myParentClass
public int hideMe;

and a child class like this:

class myChildClass : myParentClass
  //what to do here!!

and another class like this:
class anotherClass
 myChildClass child = new myChildClass();
child.hideMe = 3;//I should see the variable here

what code must be inserted into myChildClass to be unable to see the hideMe variable in anotherClass?

thanks in advance,
