Compiler Error C3071

Error Message

operator 'operator' can only be applied to an instance of a ref class or a value-type

A CLR operator cannot be used on a native type.

For more information, see % (Tracking Reference).


The following sample generates C3071.

// C3071.cpp
// compile with: /clr
class N {};
ref struct R {};

int main() {
   N n;
   %n;   // C3071

   R r;
   R ^ r2 = %r;   // OK
