I'm trying to use the DataFilter to filter data on my ScheduleView.  I have a custom class called StaffResource that inherits from Resource, in which I have several properties such as Staff Name, Office, etc.  I only want some of these properties to show up in the Member Dropdown of the DataFilter, so I mark them with Data Annotations.  My issue is that I can't get into the base Resource class to mark those 3 properties so they don't show up in the DataFilter.  Right now the datafilter shows DisplayName, ResourceName, and ResourceType in the dropdown, which I don't want.  How would I get those to not show up?

I figured out the answer.  I just created properties in my child class that had the same name as the parent Resource class and used the 'new' keyword, then decorated those with the data annotations.

[Display(AutoGenerateFilter = false)]
        public new string DisplayName
        {
            get
            {
                return base.DisplayName;
            }
            set
            {
                base.DisplayName = value;
            }
        }
