Hi experts,

I'm sure this is a simple one, but why does my following code get the error:
IFactory<E,D>.UpdateEntity(E, D)': interface members cannot have a definition..??


 public interface IFactory<E, D> where E : EntityBase where D:IDto
    {
        // update an entity with a populated Dto
        void UpdateEntity( E e , D d ) { }

        // update a dto with a populated entity
        void UpdateDto ( E e , D d ) { }

        // make an entity from an existing dto
        E MakeEntity (E e, D d) { }

        // make a dto from an existing entity
        D MakeDto( E e , D d ) { }
    }

Replace your curly braces with a semi-colon:

public interface IFactory<E, D> where E : EntityBase where D:IDto
    {
        // update an entity with a populated Dto
        void UpdateEntity( E e , D d );

        // update a dto with a populated entity
        void UpdateDto ( E e , D d );

        // make an entity from an existing dto
        E MakeEntity (E e, D d);

        // make a dto from an existing entity
        D MakeDto( E e , D d );
    }

change interface to:
 public interface IFactory<E, D> where E : EntityBase where D:IDto
    {
        // update an entity with a populated Dto
        void UpdateEntity( E e , D d );

        // update a dto with a populated entity
        void UpdateDto ( E e , D d );

        // make an entity from an existing dto
        E MakeEntity (E e, D d) ;

        // make a dto from an existing entity
        D MakeDto( E e , D d );
    }
