Continuing from Tip 5.40, this tip is how to actually make something hidden or capable of being hidden.

In the System.ComponentModel namespace, there’s the EditorBrowseableAttribute class.

Going back to the previous tip’s Method1() and Method2() methods, you’ll see in the following example how Method2() doesn’t appear in IntelliSense, just like it doesn’t appear in the Object Browser.

Of course, you can still complete the line just shown with Method2(), and everything will compile successfully.

Happy Programming! =)
