Compiler Warning (level 1) C4489

'specifier' : not allowed on interface method 'method'; override specifiers are only allowed on ref class and value class methods

A specifier keyword was incorrectly used on an interface method.

For more information, see Override Specifiers.

The following sample generates C4489.

// C4489.cpp
// compile with: /clr /c /W1
public interface class I { 
   void f() new;   // C4489
   virtual void b() override;   // C4489

   void g();   // OK
