What do you mean how? A protected member of a base class is usable in the derived class, just as if it was public to that derived class only. class Animal { protected: short legs; }; class Dog : public Animal { public: Dog() { legs = 4; } };

definitely only private you cant use in derived class. you can use direct as you are using in base class. but form the another function you cant use.
