What is method overriding in C# ?

  • If derived class defines same method as defined in its base class, it is known as method overriding in C#. It is used to achieve runtime polymorphism.
  • It enables you to provide specific implementation of the method which is already provided by its base class.
  • To perform method overriding in C#, you need to use virtual keyword with base class method and override keyword with derived class method.

}  
public class Dog: Animal  
{  
    public override void eat()  
    {  
        Console.WriteLine("Eating bread...");  
    }  
}  
public class TestOverriding  
{  
    public static void Main()  
    {  
        Dog d = new Dog();  
        d.eat();
