Hi,
i have the follwoing interesting issue:
if i use a struct, i get a warningthat the field is never assigned.

Example:

public struct Test
{
    public int Prop1 { get; set; }
}
  
class Program
{
    private static Test test1; // Justcode warning: Field 'xyz' is never assigned
     
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        test1.Prop1 = 1;
    }
}

if i change "private static Test test1;" to "public static Test test1;"the warning goes away.

Why do I get the warning? The struct has no ctor. I could put a new call in the file so that the warning goes away "test1 = new Test();" .

But why should it be needed? And why shouldn't it be needed if the field is public instead of private?

Best regards,
Wolfgang

Hello Wolfgang,

 Thanks for reporting.
Indeed this is a bug and we have plans to remove the warning for struct types. It is already logged in our product backlog and a fix awaits.
Thank you.
