protected internal

82 New Member
hi all,
again i need a clarification. the access modifier protected means that class members are accessible from its own class and its derived class only.
internal means that the class member is accessible in its own assembly.
protected internal is the union of both. does it mean that derived classes may reside in different assembly too and hence this novel modifier 'protected internal' came into existence????
hope i have conveyed my doubt clearly.

hi, went thro; the website.thanks for that but can u just give me a code example for the following statement extracted from the same site.

The difference lies when you call the derived class object with a base class variable.In class of overriding although you assign a derived class object to base class variable it will call the derived class function. In case of shadowing or hiding the base class function will be called.

i feel an example for this will create a strong understanding for this.

Just getting into OOP here...

Hello: I have a public abstract class. The concrete subclasses must pass an instance of an internal class to the abstract class' ctor.

This is fine since no one outside my...
