Hello World, I'm working on a driver and the basic gist/setup of the method is :


public enum


cat = 0,

dog = 1




public void SpecificChipFunctionality(int x, animals y)
I want to make the driver so that the user - when calling the method gets some sort of prompt from intellisense suggesting that "cat" should be used. The only way that I know how to do that is:
public void SpecificChipFunctionality(int x, animals y =
My issue with doing this is I have another method with the same name that takes in a byte, and if I want to call the byte form, Visual Studio converts my input (ex. 0x16) to an int and executes the wrong method.
Is there a way to suggest that a specific value is used without having to set it equal?

One solution could be that you name your methods differently. Or cast your value to byte when calling method. Other than that, C# will find most suitable method overload and if you are passing an int then the method will be the one with a default value.
