Compiler Error CS1913

Member 'name' cannot be initialized. It is not a field or property.

Object initializers can only be used to initialize accessible fields or properties.

To correct this error

  1. Initialize the class member in a regular constructor or other initialization method.


The following example generates CS1913:

// cs1912.cs  
class A  
    public delegate void D();  
    public event D myEvent;  
public class Test  
    static void Main()  
        A a = new A() {myEvent = M}; // CS1913  
    public void M(){}
