C# Error CS0261 – Partial declarations of ‘type’ must be all classes, all structs, or all interfaces

C# Compiler Error

CS0261 – Partial declarations of ‘type’ must be all classes, all structs, or all interfaces

Reason for the Error

You’ll get this error in your C# code when you have declared the partial type on different types of constructs in various places.

For example, lets try to compile the below code snippet.

using System;

namespace DeveloperPubNamespace
{
    partial class class1
    {
    }

    partial struct class1
    {
    }
    class Program
    {
        public static void Main()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Welcome");
        }
    }
}

You’ll receive the error code CS0261 when you try to build the C# program because you have declared the class “class1” and applied partial modifier on it and simultaneously, you have also declared a struct with the same name and marked it as partial.

Solution

You can fix this error in your C# program by ensuring that partial declarations is made for the same type.
