Expression::Not Method (Expression)

Creates a UnaryExpression that represents a bitwise complement operation.

Namespace:  System.Linq.Expressions
Assemblies:   System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
  System.Linq.Expressions (in System.Linq.Expressions.dll)

public:
static UnaryExpression^ Not(
	Expression^ expression
)

Parameters

expression
Type: System.Linq.Expressions::Expression

An Expression to set the Operand property equal to.

Return Value

Type: System.Linq.Expressions::UnaryExpression
A UnaryExpression that has the NodeType property equal to Not and the Operand property set to the specified value.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

expression is nullptr.

InvalidOperationException

The unary not operator is not defined for expression.Type.

The Method property of the resulting UnaryExpression is set to the implementing method. The Type property is set to the type of the node. If the node is lifted, the IsLifted and IsLiftedToNull properties are both true. Otherwise, they are false.

The following rules determine the implementing method for the operation:

  • If expression.Type is a user-defined type that defines the unary not operator, the MethodInfo that represents that operator is the implementing method.

  • Otherwise, if expression.Type is a numeric or Boolean type, the implementing method is nullptr.

If the implementing method is not nullptr:

  • If expression.Type is assignable to the argument type of the implementing method, the node is not lifted. The type of the node is the return type of the implementing method.

  • If the following two conditions are satisfied, the node is lifted and the type of the node is the nullable type that corresponds to the return type of the implementing method:

    • expression.Type is a nullable value type and the corresponding non-nullable type is equal to the argument type of the implementing method.

    • The return type of the implementing method is a non-nullable value type.

If the implementing method is nullptr, the type of the node is expression.Type. If expression.Type is non-nullable, the node is not lifted. Otherwise, the node is lifted.

The following example demonstrates how to create an expression that represents a logical NOT operation.
