CodeDefaultValueExpression Class

Represents a reference to a default value.

Namespace: System.CodeDom
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

[SerializableAttribute] 
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
[ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.AutoDispatch)] 
public class CodeDefaultValueExpression : CodeExpression
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
/** @attribute ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.AutoDispatch) */ 
public class CodeDefaultValueExpression extends CodeExpression

A CodeDefaultValueExpression can be used to represent a reference to a default value.

The Type property specifies the reference to the value type. The CodeDefaultValueExpression class is used in the generation of generics-based code. For more information on generics, see Generics in the .NET Framework Class Library (C# Programmers Reference). The following code steps are provided in this section to further describe the use of the CodeDefaultValueExpression class to add a new default value to a code graph.

The code in part 1 is part of a larger example provided for the CodeTypeParameter class. This code, when run through the C# code generator, results in the C# code that appears in part 2. When this code is called in the statement in part 3, the result is the output shown in part 4.

// Part 1: Code to create a generic Print method.
            CodeMemberMethod printMethod = new CodeMemberMethod();
            CodeTypeParameter sType = new CodeTypeParameter("S");
            sType.HasConstructorConstraint = true;
            CodeTypeParameter tType = new CodeTypeParameter("T");
            sType.HasConstructorConstraint = true;

            printMethod.Name = "Print";
            printMethod.TypeParameters.Add(sType);
            printMethod.TypeParameters.Add(tType);
            printMethod.Statements.Add(ConsoleWriteLineStatement(
                new CodeDefaultValueExpression(new CodeTypeReference("T"))));
            printMethod.Statements.Add(ConsoleWriteLineStatement(
                new CodeDefaultValueExpression(new CodeTypeReference("S"))));

// Part 2: Code generated by code in part 1.
public virtual void Print<S, T>()
            where S : new()
         {
            Console.WriteLine(default(T));
            Console.WriteLine(default(S));
        }

// Part 3: Call to the generated method.
dict.Print<System.Decimal, int>();

// Part 4: Output of the generated method.

The following code example shows the use of the CodeDefaultValueExpression to create default values for decimal and integer parameters. This example is part of a larger example provided for the CodeTypeParameter class.

printMethod.Statements.Add(ConsoleWriteLineStatement(
    new CodeDefaultValueExpression(new CodeTypeReference("T"))));
printMethod.Statements.Add(ConsoleWriteLineStatement(
    new CodeDefaultValueExpression(new CodeTypeReference("S"))));
