Compiler Error C3699

'operator' : cannot use this indirection on type 'type'

An attempt was made to use indirection that is not allowed on type.

The following sample generates C3699.

// C3699.cpp
// compile with: /clr /c
using namespace System;
int main() {
   String * s;   // C3699
   // try the following line instead
   // String ^ s2;
}

A trivial property cannot have reference type. See property (C++ Component Extensions) for more information. The following sample generates C3699.

// C3699_b.cpp
// compile with: /clr /c
ref struct C {
   property System::String % x;   // C3699
   property System::String ^ y;   // OK
};

The equivalent of a "pointer to a pointer" syntax is a handle to a tracking reference. The following sample generates C3699.

// C3699_c.cpp
// compile with: /clr /c
using namespace System;
void Test(String ^^ i);   // C3699
void Test2(String ^% i);
