C# Console.ReadLine();

I do not understand what Console.ReadLine() does and why the parenthesis are always open.

1 Answer

Try checking out the docs at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.console.readline?view=netframework-4.8

Basically, Console.ReadLine() is just waiting for the user to enter the return, or "Enter," key in the console. It doesn't take any arguments, so that's why the parentheses are always empty.
