The below should be perfectly valid.
public ArrayList MethodName(string a)
{
}

Open in new window

You may need to add a using statement for the System.Collections namespace, if you don't have one already, as newer Studios only tend to include the one for generics by default.
using System.Collections;

Open in new window

Or you can use the expanded:
public System.Collections.ArrayList MethodName(string a)
{
}

Open in new window

You may also want to consider using one of the newer Generics (List<> for example) rather than ArrayList.
