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
