"this = tempMatrix" is the illegal part as you cannot overload the operator = in C#, and assignments of 'this' are illegal.

That's correct, but as VizOne noted above, this is valid for structs. In this example (see above posts), Matrix is supposed to be a struct.

Assignments to this are only illegal for reference types, i.e. classes. For structs it performs a shallow copy.

Ok, thanks for enlightening me... ++VizOne.

Lol, my poor little matrix class caused such a stir!

I won't claim that using "this = this * t.GetMatrix();" is good program practice or style, but it DOES work.
