Welcome to JavaRanch, YingShiuan!
I did a quick search on this forum for the topics of "shadow" and "hide"/"hiding", and I turned up a couple of past conversations that explain well what you're trying to understand. Note that the search page link is at the top right of this page. I've listed the past conversations below.
  • overriding, hiding
  • Shadowing? - This thread links to an article and other threads on the topic


  • Good luck and don't hesitate to ask more questions around here.
