Compiler Error CS0551 

Error Message

Explicit interface implementation 'implementation' is missing accessor 'accessor'

A class that explicitly implements an interface's property must implement all the accessors that the interface defines.

For more information, see Property Declaration and Using Properties (C# Programming Guide).


The following sample generates CS0551.

// CS0551.cs
// compile with: /target:library
interface ii
   int i

public class a : ii
   int ii.i { set {} }   // CS0551

   // OK
   int ii.i    
      set {}
      get { return 0; }
