Getting master page 'base type' inheritance to work with code behind

There is a sample of dynamic master pages here
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/c8y19k6h.aspx
...go down to the section 'Attaching Master Pages Dynamically'...

I am able to copy and paste it here and get it working as stated.  I cannot get it to work if my Master pages have code behind files.  I get a 'Compilation Error' that there is a conflict between BaseMaster and what appears to be another server created master page.  I tried inheriting both BaseMaster and also System.Web.UI.MasterPage but both give the error.

So my question is how do I get it to work when the blue and green master pages have code behind files?

I figured it out.

In the aspx files, change the 'Inherits' attribute to the code behind class (not the BaseMaster class), then in the code behind class have it inherit the BaseMaster class.

So when aspx uses a code behind file they are not really treated as the same file, or one entity, as I thought.  The aspx file refers to the code behind file which can inherit another class, etc.
