Compiler Error CS0074

'event': abstract event cannot have initializer

If an event is marked as abstract, it cannot be initialized. For more information, see Events (C# Programming Guide).

The following sample generates CS0074:

// CS0074.cs
delegate void D();

abstract class Test
   public abstract event D e = null;   // CS0074
   // try the following line instead
   // public abstract event D e;

   public static void Main()
