Compiler Error CS1716

Do not use 'System.Runtime.CompilerServices.FixedBuffer' attribute. Use the 'fixed' field modifier instead.

This error arises in an unsafe code section that contains a fixed-size array declaration similar to a field declaration. Do not use this attribute. Instead, use the keyword fixed.


The following example generates CS1716.

// CS1716.cs  
// compile with: /unsafe  
using System;  
using System.Runtime.CompilerServices;  
public struct UnsafeStruct  
    [FixedBuffer(typeof(int), 4)]  // CS1716  
    unsafe public int aField;  
    // Use this single line instead of the above two lines.  
    // unsafe public fixed int aField[4];  
public class TestUnsafe  
    static int Main()  
        UnsafeStruct us = new UnsafeStruct();  
            if (us.aField[0] == 0)  
                return us.aField[1];  
                return us.aField[2];
