    You need to prefix your declaraiton in the prototype with: virtual.
    Did you do that? Maybe you would use the scope resolution operator ::

    Yeah.. you need to use the base class name

    Code:
    void Derived::func(int a) {
        Base::func(a);
    }
    Prove you can code in C++ or C# at TopCoder, referrer rrenaud
