I have the ambition to make a List, Global so it can be reached within other Threads.

When compiling the code with the declared list like this the compiler says:
syntax error : missing ';' before '<'

Should I declare the List in any other way than this ?
(The code compiles success if I take the declared List away so the problem is the declaration of the List.

Also if I try to declare the List within an eventhandler of ex: a button like this.
List<String^>^ All;
The compiler says:
'List' : undeclared identifier
'System:: String' : illegal use of this type as an expression
syntax error : '>'

I founded out that this namespace was needed for this.

using namespace System::Collections::Generic;
