Compiler Error CS0726 

Error Message

'format specifier' is not a valid format specifier

This error occurs in the debugger. When you type a variable name into one of the debugger windows, you can follow it with a comma, and then a format specifier. Examples are: myInt, h or myString,nq. This error arises when the compiler does not recognize the Format Specifiers in C#.
