Visual Studio 2005 C#

This is my class below. I want to go AddNumbers(10,20); from anywhere in the solution instead of
Test.AddNumbers(10,20);
public  class Test
    {
        public static int AddNumbers (int x, int y)
        {
            return x + y;
        }    
    }

I don't think you can do that. C# is an object-oriented language, function calls are made with the class name as the scope.

You can declare a delegate and then assign the method to this delagate and use this delegate in the solution.

public  class Test
    {
        public static int AddNumbers (int x, int y)
        {
            return x + y;
        }    
    }

In your Main class declare the following

public delegate AddNumbersDelegate(int x, int y);
public static AddNumbersDelegate  MyAddNumbers = new AddNumbersDelegate(Test.AddNumbers);

Then you can use MyAddNumbers() function throughout the main Class.

CuteBug,

I want to refere to it from anywhere in the solution - not only the Main.
looks like it is not possible? I am not entirely surpised with C# being object oriented, but would be nice to have.

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

Check this out, it's a page from microsoft showing differences between c++ and c#. Once on the page, search for "Globals:".

Personally I don't think just AddNumbers is much different from Test.AddNumbers, except that it looks cleaner. You can take a look at VB.NET, if this is important to you. :)
