operator operator' is not a recognized operator or type

The word operator must be followed by an operator that you want to override or a type you want to convert.

For a list of the operators that you can define in a managed type, see User-defined Operators.

The following sample generates C2833:

// C2833.cpp  
// compile with: /c  
class A {};  
void operator ::* ();   // C2833  
void operator :: ();   // OK
