I would like the ArrayList to be switched to a List, but I can't pass a generic List (as far as I know), because I always need the Of Type modifier, and there are two variations on the theme. Additionally, I'd like to be able to handle ArrayLists as well. All of these are collections, right? Is there a way to treat a parameter as a generic list?
Private Sub readTextFile(ByVal file As String, ByRef al_txtFileContents As ArrayList)
to call a function with this declaration:
Call readTextFile(Of ArrayList)(file, al_OptionStrikeCodes) Call readTextFile(Of List(Of List(Of String)))(file, al_OptionStrikeCodes)
which keeps giving an invalid cast on the function call, even though the variable is declared as the same type as shown in the function call.
Private Sub readTextFile(Of T)(ByVal file As String, ByRef inputList As ICollection(Of T))
