Compiler Error CS0753

Visual Studio 2008

Only methods, classes, structs, or interfaces may be partial.

The partial modifier can only be used with classes, structs, interfaces, and methods.

To correct this error

  • Remove the partial modifier from the variable or language construct.

The following code generates CS0753:

// cs0753.cs
using System;

    public partial class C
    {
        partial int num; // CS0753
        public static int Main()
        {
            return 1;
        }
    }
