Expression.Label Method (Type)

Creates a LabelTarget representing a label with the given type.

Namespace:  System.Linq.Expressions
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
public static LabelTarget Label(
	Type type


Type: System.Type

The type of value that is passed when jumping to the label.

The following example demonstrates how to use a LabelTarget object in a loop expression.

// Add the following directive to the file: 
// using System.Linq.Expressions;   

// Creating a parameter expression.
ParameterExpression value = Expression.Parameter(typeof(int), "value");

// Creating an expression to hold a local variable. 
ParameterExpression result = Expression.Parameter(typeof(int), "result");

// Creating a label to jump to from a loop.
LabelTarget label = Expression.Label(typeof(int));

// Creating a method body.
BlockExpression block = Expression.Block(
    new[] { result },
    Expression.Assign(result, Expression.Constant(1)),
               Expression.GreaterThan(value, Expression.Constant(1)),
               Expression.Break(label, result)

// Compile and run an expression tree. 
int factorial = Expression.Lambda<Func<int, int>>(block, value).Compile()(5);


// This code example produces the following output: 
// 120
