Compiler Warning (level 1) CS1580 

Error Message

Invalid type for parameter 'parameter number' in XML comment cref attribute

When attempting to reference an overload form of a method, the compiler detected a syntax error. Typically, this indicates that the parameter name, and not the type, was specified. A malformed line will appear in the generated XML file.

The following sample generates CS1580:

// CS1580.cs
// compile with: /W:1 /doc:x.xml
using System;

/// <seealso cref="Test(i)"/>   // CS1580
// try the following line instead
// /// <seealso cref="Test(int)"/>
public class MyClass
{
   /// <summary>help text</summary>
   public static void Main()
   {
   }

   /// <summary>help text</summary>
   public void Test(int i)
   {
   }

   /// <summary>help text</summary>
   public void Test(char i)
   {
   }
}
