Compiler Error CS0270

Array size cannot be specified in a variable declaration (try initializing with a 'new' expression)

This error occurs when a size is specified as part of an array declaration. To resolve, use the new Operator expression.

The following example generates CS0270:

// CS0270.cs
// compile with: /t:module

public class Test
   int[10] a;   // CS0270
   // To resolve, use the following line instaead:
   // int[] a = new int[10];
