There are certain situation when we want to make some of the public base class functions as private in the derived class. Suppose both base and child class has getter and setter methods
i = 4 j = 2 k = 3
Here if we need to restrict the call of function “setBaseProperties” and “showBaseProperties” with Child class object “c”. This can be achieved without overriding the function as below:
We re-declare base class functions in derived class scope using “using” syntax. We do it in private section of derived class.
i = 1 j = 2 k = 3
