Compiler Warning (level 1) C4817

'member' : illegal use of '.' to access this member; compiler replaced with '->'

The wrong member access operator was used.

Example

The following sample generates C4817.

// C4817.cpp  
// compile with: /clr /W1  
using namespace System;  
int main() {  
   array<Int32> ^ a = gcnew array<Int32>(100);  
   Console::WriteLine( a.Length );   // C4817  
   Console::WriteLine( a->Length );   // OK  
}
