Compiler Warning (level 3) CS0419

Ambiguous reference in cref attribute: 'Method Name1'. Assuming 'Method Name2', but could have also matched other overloads including 'Method Name3'.

In an XML documentation comment in the code, a reference could not be resolved. This could occur if the method is overloaded, or if two different identifiers with the same name are found. To resolve the warning, use a qualified name to disambiguate the reference, or include the specific overload in parentheses.

The following sample generates CS0419.

// cs0419.cs
// compile with: /doc:x.xml /W:3
interface I
{
   /// text for F(void)
   void F();
   /// text for F(int)
   void F(int i);
}
/// text for class MyClass
public class MyClass
{
   /// <see cref="I.F"/>
   public static void MyMethod(int i)
   {
   }
/* Try this instead:
   /// <see cref="I.F(int)"/>
   public static void MyMethod(int i)
   {
   }
*/
   /// text for Main
   public static void Main ()
   {
   }
}
