Compiler Error C3374

Error Message

can't take address of 'function' unless creating delegate instance

The address of a function was taken in a context other than the creation of a delegate instance.

The following sample generates C3374:

// C3374.cpp
// compile with: /clr
public delegate void MyDel(int i);

ref class A {
   void func1(int i) {
      System::Console::WriteLine("in func1 {0}", i);

int main() {
   &A::func1;   // C3374

   // OK
   A ^ a = gcnew A;
   MyDel ^ StaticDelInst = gcnew MyDel(a, &A::func1);
