Compiler Error C3727

'event': a managed event must be a member function or a data member that is a pointer to a delegate

.NET events must be a pointer to a delegate type.

The following sample generates C3727:

// C3727.cpp
// compile with: /clr:oldSyntax
#using <mscorlib.dll>

__gc class PseudoDelegate

// use the following declaration to resolve the error.
// __delegate void PseudoDelegate(int);

__gc class MyAttr
   __event PseudoDelegate* MyE;
};   // C3727

int main()
