What I'm trying to do is avoid duplicating code to access/manipulate the common properties. In TestFunction I want to be able to take unknownObject, cast it to its actual class type, and display or change its properties. Something like the following (which won't build):
C#
private void TestFunction(object unknownClass)
{
   var localObject = null;
   string specificProperty = string.empty;

   switch (unknownObject.GetType().Name)
   {
      case "ClassOne":
         localObject = (ClassOne)unknownObject;
         specificProperty = object.ClassOneProperty;
         break;
      case "ClassTwo":
         localObject = (ClassTwo)unknownObject;
         specificProperty = object.ClassTwoProperty;
         break;
   }

   Console.PrintLine($"Common Property = {localObject.CommonProperty}, Specific Property = {specificProperty}.");
}
If you think 'goto' is evil, try writing an Assembly program without JMP.
