iterators - c# - what am I missing? body of get cannot be an iterator because MyType is not an iterator interface type

Hi Experts,

I have this c# property:

        public MyClass NextObject {
            get
            {
                for(int i = 0; i < m_Objects.Count; i++)   // List<MyClass> m_Objects
                    yield return m_Objects[i];
            }
        }

Open in new window


I'm getting "The body of 'NextObject.get' cannot be an iterator block because 'MyClass' is not an iterator interface type".  How do I fix this?

Thanks!
Mike

Hi thread;

It is because the return type of the iterator method must be one of the following types, IEnumerable, IEnumerable<T>, IEnumerator, or IEnumerator<T>.

using System.Collections;


public IEnumerable<MyClass> NextObject 
{
    get
    {
        for(int i = 0; i < m_Objects.Count; i++)   // List<MyClass> m_Objects
            yield return m_Objects[i];
    }
}
