Compiler Warning (level 1 and level 4) C4700


For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

uninitialized local variable 'name' used

You used the local variable name without first assigning it a value, which could lead to unpredictable results.

The following sample generates C4700:

// C4700.cpp  
// compile with: /W1  
int main() {  
   int i;  
   return i;   // C4700  

Under /clr:safe this is a level 4 warning. The following sample generates C4700:

// C4700b.cpp  
// compile with: /W4 /clr:safe /c  
using namespace System;  
int main() {  
   Int32^ bi;  
   return *bi;   // C4700
