Compiler Error CS0544 

Error Message

'property override': cannot override because 'non-property' is not a property

An attempt was made to override a nonproperty data type as a property, which is not allowed.

The following sample generates CS0544:

// CS0544.cs
// compile with: /target:library
public class a
{
   public int i;
}

public class b : a
{
   public override int i {   // CS0544
   // try the following line instead
   // public new int i {
      get
      {
         return 0;
      }
   }
}
