    virtual base class constructor

    Hello everyone,


    From MSDN virtual base class reference, what means "If a derived class overrides a virtual function that it inherits from a virtual base class, and if a constructor or a destructor for the derived base class calls that function using a pointer to the virtual base class, the compiler may introduce additional hidden "vtordisp" fields into the classes with virtual bases."

    I do not understand why an additional hidden filed is needed?

    thanks in advance,
    George
