Compiler Error CS0149

Method name expected

When creating a delegate, specify a method. For more information, see Delegates.

The following sample generates CS0149:

// CS0149.cs  
using System;  
  
delegate string MyDelegate(int i);  
  
class MyClass  
{  
   // class member-field of the declared delegate type  
   static MyDelegate dt;
  
   public static void Main()  
   {  
      dt = new MyDelegate(17.45);   // CS0149  
      // try the following line instead  
      // dt = new MyDelegate(Func2);  
      F(dt);  
   }  
  
   public static string Func2(int j)  
   {  
      Console.WriteLine(j);  
      return j.ToString();  
   }  
  
   public static void F(MyDelegate myFunc)  
   {  
      myFunc(8);  
   }  
}
