I'm looking for some way to effectively hide inherited members. I have a library of classes which inherit from common base classes. Some of the more recent descendant classes inherit dependency properties which have become vestigial and can be a little confusing when using IntelliSense or using the classes in a visual designer.
These classes are all controls that are written to be compiled for either WPF or Silverlight 2.0. I know about
ICustomPropertyProvider, but I'm pretty certain those can't be used in Silverlight.
It's not as much a functional issue as a usability issue. What should I do?
Some of the properties that I would really like to hide come from ancestors that are not my own and because of a specific tool I'm designing for, I can't do member hiding with the
new operator. (I know, it's ridiculous)
