Compiler Error C3880

Error Message

'var' : cannot be a literal data member

The type of a literal attribute must be, or compile-time convertible to, one of the following types:

  • integral type

  • string

  • enum with an integral or underlying type

The following sample generates C3880:

// C3880.cpp
// compile with: /clr /c
ref struct Y1 {
   literal System::Decimal staticConst1 = 10;   // C3880
   literal int staticConst2 = 10;   // OK
