Compiler Error CS0053 

Error Message

Inconsistent accessibility: property type 'type' is less accessible than property 'property'

A public construct must return a publicly accessible object. For more information, see Access Modifiers (C# Programming Guide).

The following sample generates CS0053:

// CS0053.cs
class MyClass //defaults to private accessibility
// try the following line instead
// public class MyClass
{
}

public class MyClass2
{
   public MyClass myProperty   // CS0053
   {
      get
      {
         return new MyClass();
      }
      set
      {
      }
   }
}

public class MyClass3
{
   public static void Main()
   {
   }
}
