Compiler Error CS0622

Visual Studio 2008

Can only use array initializer expressions to assign to array types. Try using a new expression instead.

Syntax that is appropriate to initialize an array was used in the declaration of a non-array.

The following sample generates CS0622:

// CS0622.cs
using System;

public class Test
    public static void Main ()
        Test t = { new Test() };   // CS0622
        // Try the following instead:
        // Test[] t = { new Test() };
