Extension methods are a great new way of adding functionality to an existing type  even a type you dont have the source code to modify that type. This article explains extension methods and provides clear examples along with pros and cons.

>> if a function is passing 2 parameters then how we will call this function

What do you mean exactly ?


string s = "Hello Extension Methods";
string strReverse = s.Reverse (strReverse, 10);
 
public string Reverse(String strReverse, int MaxLength)
{
    ...
}

Open in new window

Hi

I got my answer, but one more thing I want to ask is,

where is this statement justified

Extension method allows you to add new method to the existing class without modifying the code, recompiling or modifying the original code.

because we can attain the same result by using function overload.

What additional benefit do the developers have for using this function

you should really assign the points to this question and open a new one. But...
Overloading is different. Overloading allows you to create the same method name with different parameters e.g
public void DoSomething() { }
public void DoSomething(int aParameter) {}
etc....
Extension methods allow to to add methods to existing classes without having access to that classes source code. e.g you can add methods to the string object which is a build in class in the .net framework.
Overloading & Extensions are not the same.
