This is a very common intervew question. There are 4 ways that can be used to make method parameters optional. 1. Use parameter arrays 2. Method overloading 3. Specify parameter defaults 4. Use OptionalAttribute that is present in System.Runtime.InteropServices namespace Using parameter arrays, to make method parameters optional: AddNumbers function, allows the user to add 2 or more numbers. firstNumber and secondNumber parameters are mandatory, where as restOfTheNumbers parameter is optional. public static void AddNumbers(int firstNumber, int secondNumber, params object[] restOfTheNumbers) { int result = firstNumber + secondNumber; foreach (int i in restOfTheNumbers) { result += i; } Console.WriteLine("Total = " + result.ToString()); } Please note that, a parameter array must be the last parameter in a formal parameter list. The following function will not compile. public static void AddNumbers(int firstNumber, params object[] restOfTheNumbers, int secondNumber) { // Function implementation } If the user wants to add just 2 numbers, then he would invoke the method as shown below. AddNumbers(10, 20); On the other hand, if the user wants to add 5 numbers, then he would invoke the method as shown below. AddNumbers(10, 20, 30, 40, 50); or AddNumbers(10, 20, new object[] { 30, 40, 50 }); In our next video, we will discuss method overloading, specifying parameter defaults & using OptionalAttribute.
