Compiler Error CS0544

'property override' : cannot override; 'non-property' is not a property

An attempt was made to override a nonproperty data type as a property, which is not allowed.

The following sample generates CS0544:

// CS0544.cs
namespace x
{
   public class a
   {
      public int i;
   }

   public class b : a
   {
      public override int i   // CS0544
      // the following line resolves CS0544
      // public new int i
      {
         get
         {
            return 0;
         }
      }

      public static void Main()
      {
      }
   }
}
