Description Atsushi Eno 2015-05-14 05:21:26 UTC
In the code below, suppose you are going to overide method "X" in D class.

using System;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

class B
	public virtual async Task<B> X ()
		return new B ();

class D : B

On the text editor, you type "override" and get override candidates. Select "X()..."

The resulting D class looks like this:

class D : B
	public override async Task<B> X ()
		return base.X ();

It doesn't compile. Because by having "async" keyword, it is expected to return B, not Task<B>. But base.X() returns Task.

VS2015 doesn't seem to add this "async".

Note that if you are overriding a method from different assembly, you won't get "async" in the generated signature (because "async" does not exist in the resulting dll).
