+Summary: CS1540 error when accessing protected property of base class
+Compiling the file below reports this error:
+MyCollection.cs(8,15): error CS1540: Cannot access protected member

+type `MyCollection<T>'; the qualifier must be of type `MyCollection<T>' (or

+using System.Collections.ObjectModel;
+public class MyCollection<T> : Collection<T>
+    public void Foo()

+    }
