Compiler Error C3189

Error Message

'typeid<type abstract declarator>': this syntax is no longer supported, use ::typeid instead

An obsolete form of typeid was used, use the new form.

The following sample generates C3189:

// C3189.cpp
// compile with: /clr
int main() {
   System::Type^ t  = typeid<System::Object>;   // C3189
   System::Type^ t2  = System::Object::typeid;   // OK
