CodeCastExpression can be used to represent an expression cast to a different data type or interface.

The Expression property indicates the CodeExpression to cast. The TargetType property indicates the type to cast to.

This example demonstrates using a CodeCastExpression to cast a System.Int32 value to a System.Int64 data type.

// This CodeCastExpression casts an Int32 of 1000 to an Int64.        
CodeCastExpression castExpression = new CodeCastExpression(
    // targetType parameter indicating the target type of the cast.
    "System.Int64",
    // The CodeExpression to cast, here an Int32 value of 1000.
    new CodePrimitiveExpression(1000) );    

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

// ((long)(1000));

// This CodeCastExpression casts an Int32 of 1000 to an Int64.        
CodeCastExpression castExpression = new CodeCastExpression(
    // targetType parameter indicating the target type of the cast.
    "System.Int64",
    // The CodeExpression to cast, here an Int32 value of 1000.
    new CodePrimitiveExpression(System.Convert.ToString(1000)));
// A VJ# code generator produces the following source code for 
// the preceeding example code:
// (System.Convert.ToInt64(1000));
