What you are asking sounds more like a source control/file permissions task. I don't know if you are using VSS or Team, but I believe that both of those have permissions options that can be set up on specific files to restrict access.

As an alternative, you could move the sensitive modules into a separate project that the junior programmers do not have access to and compile them as a separate dll. Then the junior programmers would have to include the dll into their projects, but they could not modify the source unless you give it to them explicitly.

hi jbm1313

i have tried vss. it makes the modules readonly. so juniors cannot modify the module. but i want such system where junior programmers could not see the code. i can also not make dll at this stage, because project cannot be devided into parts.
is there any way that makes the module visible blank to the junior programmer??

Unfortunately, I don't know of any method to hide specific source from specific people in a single project.

It isn't possible right now ... unless you develop something Application to do so...

But Never mind you cannot hide any file content from the great Notepad
