Named parameters in C#
Related to optional parameters in C# are named parameters at method calls. There are libraries with classes that have long argument lists and when calling these methods we usually have to give only the parameters we know.
The following example shows how to call method with named parameters to save time and win on readability of code.
static void Main()
SomeMethod(value2: "Second value");
static void SomeMethod(string value1 = "value1", string value2 = "value2", string value3 = "value3" /* etc */)
Console.WriteLine("value1: " + value1);
Console.WriteLine("value2: " + value2);
Console.WriteLine("value3: " + value3);
