Compiler Error CS0572 

Error Message

'type' : cannot reference a type through an expression; try 'path_to_type' instead

An attempt was made to access a member of a class through an identifier, which is not permitted in this situation.

The following sample generates CS0572:

// CS0572.cs
using System;
class C
{
   public class Inner
   {
      public static int v = 9;
   }
}

class D : C
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      C cValue = new C();
      Console.WriteLine(cValue.Inner.v);   // CS0572
      // try the following line instead
      // Console.WriteLine(C.Inner.v);
   }
}
