    Question how to call a second-level base class method

    Hi all
    I'm changing a C++ style code into C#, and naturally facing some problems. in the original C++ code I had 3 classes and a function in all of them, as shown below:
    Code:
    public class A{
    public void tick();
    }
    
    public class B: A
    {
    public override void tick();
    }
    
    public class C: B
    {
    public override void tick(){
    ...
    A::tick();  //calling the second-level base class method
    }
    
    }
    how can I do such a thing?

    You're looking at class-level functions instead of object-level functions, so you'd utilize static methods in C#:
    Code:
        class A
        {
            public static void Tick() { Console.WriteLine("In A."); }
        }
    
        class B : A
        {
            public new static void Tick() { Console.WriteLine("In B."); }
        }
    
        class C : B
        {
            public new static void Tick()
            {
                Console.WriteLine("In C.");
                A.Tick();
                B.Tick();
            }
        }
    
        class Program
        {
            static void Main(string[] args)
            {
                C.Tick();
            }
        }
    Code:
    In C.
    In A.
    In B.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.
