Compiler Error CS1526 

Error Message

A new expression requires () or [] after type

The new operator, used to dynamically allocate memory for an object, was not specified correctly.


The following sample shows how to use new to allocate space for an array and an object.

// CS1526.cs
public class y
   public static int i = 0;
   public int myi = 0;

public class z
   public static void Main()
      y py = new y;   // CS1526
      y[] aoys = new y[10];   // Array of Ys

      for (int i = 0; i < aoys.Length; i++)
         aoys[i] = new y();   // an object of type y
