Compiler Warning (level 2) CS0436

The type 'type' in 'assembly' conflicts with the imported type 'type2' in 'assembly'. Using the type defined in 'assembly'.

This warning is issued when a type in a source file (file_2) conflicts with an imported type in file_1. The compiler uses the one in the source file.

Example 1

// CS0436_a.cs  
// compile with: /target:library  
public class A {  
   public void Test() {  
      System.Console.WriteLine("CS0436_a");  
   }  
}  

Example 2

The following example generates CS0436.

// CS0436_b.cs  
// compile with: /reference:CS0436_a.dll  
// CS0436 expected  
public class A {
   public void Test() {  
      System.Console.WriteLine("CS0436_b");  
   }  
}  
  
public class Test
{  
   public static void Main()
   {  
      A x = new A();  
      x.Test();  
   }  
}
