Compiler Error CS1609 

Error Message

Modifiers cannot be placed on event accessor declarations

Modifiers can only be placed on event declarations and not on the event accessor declarations. For more information, see Using Properties (C# Programming Guide).


The following sample generates CS1609.

// CS1609.cs
// compile with: /target:library
delegate int Del();
class A
   public event Del MyEvent 
      private add {}   // CS1609
      // try the following line instead
      // add {}
      remove {}
