event': must be a method or, in the case of managed events, optionally a data member

Native and COM events must be methods. .NET events can also be data members.

The following sample generates C3736:

// C3736.cpp  
struct A {  
   __event int e();  
};  
  
struct B {  
   int f;   // C3736  
   // The following line resolves the error.  
   // int f();  
   B(A* a) {  
      __hook(&A::e, a, &B::f);  
   }  
};  
  
int main() {  
}
