Compiler Error CS1624

The body of 'accessor' cannot be an iterator block because 'type' is not an iterator interface type

This error occurs if an iterator accessor is used but the return type is not one of the iterator interface types: IEnumerable, IEnumerable<T>, IEnumerator, IEnumerator<T>. To avoid this error, use one of the iterator interface types as a return type.


The following sample generates CS1624:

// CS1624.cs
using System;
using System.Collections;

class C
    public int Iterator
    // Try this instead:
    // public IEnumerable Iterator
        get  // CS1624
            yield return 1;
