Description Frederik 2015-11-30 17:42:13 UTC
I have a method called "WriteLine()", calling it using "WriteLine("some text");" gives the error:
"The call is ambiguous between the following methods or properties: `WriteLine(string, System.ConsoleColor, System.ConsoleColor)' and `WriteLine(string, System.ConsoleColor, System.ConsoleColor, params object[])' (CS0121)"

The method has the following 2 overloads (signatures):
public void WriteLine(string format, ConsoleColor foreColor = ConsoleColor.White, ConsoleColor backColor = ConsoleColor.Black, params object[] args)
public void WriteLine(string line, ConsoleColor foreColor = ConsoleColor.White, ConsoleColor backColor = ConsoleColor.Black)

Calling the method like this, does not yield the error:
WriteLine("", ConsoleColor.Black, ConsoleColor.Black);
