Compiler Error CS0471

The method 'name' is not a generic method. If you intended an expression list, use parentheses around the < expression.

This error is generated when your code contains an expression list without parentheses.

The following example generates CS0471.

// CS0471.cs
// compile with: /t:library
class Test
{
    public void F(bool x, bool y) {}
    public void F1()
    {
        int a = 1, b = 2, c = 3;
        F(a<b, c>(3));    // CS0471
        // To resolve, try the following instead:
        // F((a<b), c>(3));
    }
}
