Compiler Error CS0701

'identifier' is not a valid constraint. A type used as a constraint must be an interface, a non-sealed class or a type parameter.

This error occurs if a sealed type is used as a constraint. To resolve this error, use only non-sealed types as constraints.


The following sample generates CS0701.

// CS0701.cs  
// compile with: /target:library  
class C<T> where T : System.String {}   // CS0701  
class D<T> where T : System.Attribute {}   // OK
