initonly** is a context-sensitive keyword that indicates that variable assignment can occur only as part of the declaration or in a static constructor in the same class.

// mcpp_initonly.cpp  
// compile with: /clr /c  
ref struct Y1 {  
   static int staticConst1;  
   static int staticConst2 = 0;  
   static Y1() {  
      staticConst1 = 0;
