Compiler Error CS1023

Embedded statement cannot be a declaration or labeled statement

An embedded statement, such as the statements following an if statement, can contain neither declarations nor labeled statements.

The following sample generates CS1023 twice:

// CS1023.cs
public class a
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      if (1)
         int i;      // CS1023, declaration is not valid here

      if (1)
         xx : i++;   // CS1023, labeled statement is not valid here
   }
}
