C# Error CS0515 – ‘function’ : access modifiers are not allowed on static constructors

C# Compiler Error

CS0515 – ‘function’ : access modifiers are not allowed on static constructors

Reason for the Error

You’ll get this error in your C# code when you have specified the access modifiers for the static constructors.

For example, let’s try to compile the below C# code snippet.

using System;
namespace DeveloperPublishNamespace
{
    public class BaseClass
    {
        public static BaseClass() 
        {

        }
    }
    class Program
    {    
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("No Error");
        }
    }
}

You’ll receive the error code CS0515 because the class BaseClass has a static constructor and has the public access modifier specified for it.

C# Error CS0515 – 'function' : access modifiers are not allowed on static constructors

Solution

In C#, you cannot have the access modifiers for the static constructor. To fix the error code CS0515, you will need to remove the access modifier for the static constructor.
