Compiler Warning (level 4) C4339

'type' : use of undefined type detected in CLR meta-data - use of this type may lead to a runtime exception

A type was not defined in code that was compiled for the common language runtime. Define the type to avoid a possible runtime exception.

This warning is off by default. See Compiler Warnings That Are Off by Default for more information.

The following sample generates C4339:

// C4339.cpp
// compile with: /W4 /clr /c
// C4339 expected
#pragma warning(default : 4339)

// Delete the following line to resolve.
class A;

// Uncomment the following line to resolve.
// class A{};

class X {
   X() {}

   virtual A *mf() {
      return 0;

X * f() {
   return new X();
