Redefining Members

  • Mikael Olsson


A member in a derived class can redefine a member in its base class. This can be done for all kinds of inherited members, but it is most often used to give instance methods new implementations. To give a method a new implementation, the method is redefined in the child class with the same signature as it has in the base class. The signature includes the name, parameters and return type of the method.
