C# Error CS0522 – ‘constructor’ : structs cannot call base class constructors

C# Compiler Error

CS0522 – ‘constructor’ : structs cannot call base class constructors

Reason for the Error

You’ll get this error in your C# code when you attempt to call the base class constructor from the struct.

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

using System;
namespace DeveloperPublishNamespace
{
    public class BaseClass
    {
        public BaseClass(int i)
        {

        }
    }
    public struct samplestruct
    {
        public samplestruct(int i) : base(0)
        {

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

You’ll receive the error code CS0522 because the struct “samplestruct” has a constructor that is calling the base class constructor.

C# Error CS0522 – 'constructor' : structs cannot call base class constructors

Solution

To fix this error in your C# code, you will need to remove the call to the base class constructor from the struct.

using System;
namespace DeveloperPublishNamespace
{
    public class BaseClass
    {
        public BaseClass(int i)
        {

        }
    }
    public struct samplestruct
    {
        public samplestruct(int i)
        {

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