I'm currently learning C# and moderatly know VB.NET. I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong in this practice example. I am getting an error when I compile the project: "cannot convert from method group to object" for ThisInvoice.GetInvoiceAmount. Any help would be appreciated. Heres the code -

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;

    class Invoice
    {
        private string partNumber, description;
        private int quantity;
        private decimal price;

        public Invoice()
        {
            partNumber = "";
            description = "";
            quantity = 1;
            price = 0;
        }
       
        public string PartNumber
        {
            get
            {
                return partNumber;
            }
            set
            {
                partNumber = value;
            }

        }

        public string Description
        {
            get
            {
                return description;
            }
            set
            {
                description = value;
            }
        }

        public int Quantity
        {
            get
            {
                return quantity;
            }
            set
            {
                quantity = value;
            }
        }

        public decimal Price
        {
            get
            {
                return price;
            }
            set
            {
                price = value;
            }
        }

        public decimal GetInvoiceAmount()
        {          
                return Quantity * Price;            
        }
    }

Hi dynamk;

The posted class looks fine. How are you creating the class and initializeing the variables and calling GetInvoiceAmount()? Can you post the code where you do this?

Here's the calling class:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;


    class InvoiceTest
    {            
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Invoice ThisInvoice = new Invoice();
            ThisInvoice.PartNumber = "124578ab";
            ThisInvoice.Description = "Widget1";
            ThisInvoice.Price = Convert.ToDecimal(7.99);

            Console.WriteLine("Please enter quantity desired:");
            ThisInvoice.Quantity = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine());
            Console.WriteLine("Your invoice details are as follows:\nPart Number: {0}\nDescription: {1}\nPrice: {2}\n",ThisInvoice.PartNumber,ThisInvoice.Description,ThisInvoice.Price);
            Console.WriteLine("Quantity: {0}  ", ThisInvoice.Quantity);
            Console.WriteLine("Total Amount: {0}", ThisInvoice.GetInvoiceAmount);
        }
    }

Hi dynamk;

Change this line in your code

            Console.WriteLine("Total Amount: {0}", ThisInvoice.GetInvoiceAmount);

To this

            Console.WriteLine("Total Amount: {0}", ThisInvoice.GetInvoiceAmount());
