    no overload for method 'GenerateNumberOfPolicies' takes '0' arguments

    All I'm trying to do is get a data generator to put a random number into a box. This is the code for this part of the generator:

    /// <summary>
    /// Generates the next number of policies a person has.
    /// </summary>
    /// <param name="Max">The maximum number of policies allowed.</param>
    /// <returns>A number of policies as an integer.</returns>
    public Int32 GenerateNumberOfPolicies(int Max)
    {
    return _RandomNumberGenerator.Next(0, Max);

    My professor wrote that code and told the class to use it.
    This is what I've wrote:

    private void TestButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    FirstNameTextBox.Text = m_idgTestData.GenerateFirstName();
    LastNameTextBox.Text = m_idgTestData.GenerateLastName();
    CustIDTextBox.Text = m_idgTestData.GenerateRandomID();
    NumPolicyTextBox.Text = m_idgTestData.GenerateNumberOfPolicies();
    }

    I had no issues generating random data for the first 3 text boxes but now I'm getting an error for code that I didn't write and haven't been taught yet.
    What's the issue here?

    First of all thanks for telling us this is a homework assignment- we'll point you in the right direction but you'll have to figure it out yourself.

    Second, please use code tags when posting code in the future- makes it easier for us to read.

    This is a very simple problem and the answer is staring you in the face. Take a good look at the declaration line of the GenerateNumberOfPolicies method- the answer is very plain. While you're looking, think about what an argument is.

    Post back if you have problems figuring this out.
    Code:
    if (Issue.Resolved)
    {
         ThreadTools.Click();
         MarkThreadResolved();
    }

    First you want to call the GenerateNumberOfPolicies method sending parameter as int type.

    First you want to call the GenerateNumberOfPolicies method sending parameter as int type.if you want to call the methos tou want to create a instance of object .without object means you want to use static.
