Compiler Error C3466

'type' : a specialization of a generic class cannot be forwarded

You cannot use type forwarding on a specialization of a generic class.

For more information, see Type Forwarding (C++/CLI).

The following sample creates a component.

// C3466.cpp
// compile with: /clr /LD
generic<typename T>
public ref class GR {};

public ref class GR2 {};

The following sample generates C3466.

// C3466_b.cpp
// compile with: /clr /c
#using "C3466.dll"
[assembly:TypeForwardedTo(GR<int>::typeid)];   // C3466
[assembly:TypeForwardedTo(GR2::typeid)];   // OK
