If you mean hiding of fields: I would suggest it's almost never a good idea to do this intentionally, as it just creates confusion. However you may encounter it in programs written by others, or you may do it yourself without realizing it, so it's helpful to understand how it works.

Jim, thanks for your response.
Hiding as in encapsulation or in inheritance?
Jeroen, my question was in the context of inheritance. Can you explain field hiding in encapsulation? thanks
