Compiler Error CS0198

Fields of static readonly field 'name' cannot be assigned to (except in a static constructor or a variable initializer)

A readonly variable must have the same static usage as the constructor in which you want to initialize it. For more information, see Static Constructors (C# Programming Guide).

The following sample generates CS0198:

// CS0198.cs
class MyClass
   public static readonly int TestInt = 6;

      TestInt = 11;   // CS0198, constructor is not static and readonly field is

   public static void Main()
