Compiler Error CS0470 

Error Message

Method 'method' cannot implement interface accessor 'accessor' for type 'type'. Use an explicit interface implementation.

This error is generated when an accessor is trying to implement an interface. Explicit interface implementation must be used.


The following sample generates CS0470.

// CS0470.cs
// compile with: /target:library

interface I
   int P { get; }

class MyClass : I
   public int get_P() { return 0; }   // CS0470
   public int P2 { get { return 0;} }   // OK
