Compiler Error C3901

Error Message

'accessor_function': must have return type 'type'

At least one get method's return type must match the property type. For more information, see property.

The following sample generates C3901:

// C3901.cpp
// compile with: /clr /c
using namespace System;
ref class X {
   property String^ Name {
      void get();   // C3901
      // try the following line instead
      // String^ get();

ref class Y {
   property double values[int, int] {
      int get(int, int);   // C3901
      // try the following line instead
      // double get(int, int);
