Generic Method

Possibly save 2 hours of your time: There are times when you want to refactor your method. This happens when you have duplicate code that acts on two similar objects.


  • You have ObjectA
  • You have ObjectB
  • You have Method1(ObjectA)
  • You have Method2(ObjectB)
  • Both Method1 and Method2 has exact code that operates on the similar Object.


  • First, make ObjectA and ObjectB inherit same interface IObject

                class ObjectA : IObject

                class ObjectB : IObject

  • Then, change your Method1 and Method2 to

                 Method<T>(T object) where T : IObject

  • Third, refactor your method 1 and 2 so that your caller will just call this method with ObjectA or ObjectB as parameter
