Function-argument-help in C#
« on: November 12, 2019, 07:56:59 pm »
I'm working with a Visual Studio 2017 project.
When I run Function-argument-help (ctrl+shift+space) on:
Code: [Select]
var reader = new StreamReader(stream);
#1: The first result displayed (1 of 13) shows the arguments as "=262190"

#2: When I place the cursor on "StreamReader" and do push-tag I get taken to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.6.2\mscorlib.xml (line 84311).

Which is, I guess, the comment for the class StreamReader.
How I can get to one of the 13 overloads for the constructor?
BTW, when I scan this file for constructors, I find only 11 - not 13.

When I click the little green arrow, I get this:

Microsoft does not distribute source for the .NET core libraries, so we tag what information we have.

I'll look into the "=262190" issue when I get a chance.
