|Breaking Change||Breaking - when raised on assemblies
Non-breaking - when raised on type parameters
The name of an identifier contains the underscore (_) character.
By convention, identifier names do not contain the underscore (_) character. The rule checks namespaces, types, members, and parameters.
Naming conventions provide a common look for libraries that target the common language runtime. This reduces the learning curve that is required for new software libraries, and increases customer confidence that the library was developed by someone who has expertise in developing managed code.
How to Fix Violations
Remove all underscore characters from the name.
When to Suppress Warnings
Do not suppress a warning from this rule.
