Compiler Error C3469

Error Message

'type' : a generic class cannot be forwarded

You cannot use type forwarding on a generic class.

For more information, see Type Forwarding.


The following sample creates a component.

// C3469.cpp
// compile with: /clr /LD
generic<typename T>
public ref class GR {};

public ref class GR2 {};

The following sample generates C3466.

// C3469_b.cpp
// compile with: /clr /c
#using "C3469.dll"
[assembly:TypeForwardedTo(GR::typeid)];   // C3469
[assembly:TypeForwardedTo(GR2::typeid)];   // OK
