NewArrayExpression Class

Represents creating a new array and possibly initializing the elements of the new array.

System.Object
  System.Linq.Expressions.Expression
    System.Linq.Expressions.NewArrayExpression

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

public class NewArrayExpression : Expression

The NewArrayExpression type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public propertyCanReduceIndicates that the node can be reduced to a simpler node. If this returns true, Reduce() can be called to produce the reduced form. (Inherited from Expression.)
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneExpressionsGets the bounds of the array if the value of the NodeType property is NewArrayBounds, or the values to initialize the elements of the new array if the value of the NodeType property is NewArrayInit.
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneNodeTypeGets the node type of this Expression. (Inherited from Expression.)
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneTypeGets the static type of the expression that this Expression represents. (Overrides Expression.Type.)

In Silverlight for Windows Phone Windows Phone OS 7.1, this member is inherited from Expression.Type.


In XNA Framework Windows Phone OS 7.0, this member is inherited from Expression.Type.

  NameDescription
Protected methodAcceptDispatches to the specific visit method for this node type. For example, MethodCallExpression calls the VisitMethodCall. (Overrides Expression.Accept(ExpressionVisitor).)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReduceReduces this node to a simpler expression. If CanReduce returns true, this should return a valid expression. This method can return another node which itself must be reduced. (Inherited from Expression.)
Public methodReduceAndCheckReduces this node to a simpler expression. If CanReduce returns true, this should return a valid expression. This method can return another node which itself must be reduced. (Inherited from Expression.)
Public methodReduceExtensionsReduces the expression to a known node type (that is not an Extension node) or just returns the expression if it is already a known type. (Inherited from Expression.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneToStringReturns a textual representation of the Expression. (Inherited from Expression.)
Public methodUpdateCreates a new expression that is like this one, but using the supplied children. If all of the children are the same, it will return this expression.
Protected methodVisitChildrenReduces the node and then calls the visitor delegate on the reduced expression. The method throws an exception if the node is not reducible. (Inherited from Expression.)

The following table shows the different factory methods that you can use to create a NewArrayExpression depending on the NodeType you require.

The following example creates a NewArrayExpression object that represents creating and initializing a one-dimensional array of strings.


List<System.Linq.Expressions.Expression> trees =
    new List<System.Linq.Expressions.Expression>()
           { System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.Constant("oak"),
             System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.Constant("fir"),
             System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.Constant("spruce"),
             System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.Constant("alder") };

// Create an expression tree that represents creating and  
// initializing a one-dimensional array of type string.
System.Linq.Expressions.NewArrayExpression newArrayExpression =
    System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.NewArrayInit(typeof(string), trees);

// Output the string representation of the Expression.
outputBlock.Text += newArrayExpression.ToString() + "\n";

// This code produces the following output:
//
// new [] {"oak", "fir", "spruce", "alder"}


The next example creates a NewArrayExpression object that represents creating a two-dimensional array of strings.


// Create an expression tree that represents creating a 
// two-dimensional array of type string with bounds [3,2].
System.Linq.Expressions.NewArrayExpression newArrayExpression =
    System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.NewArrayBounds(
            typeof(string),
            System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.Constant(3),
            System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.Constant(2));

// Output the string representation of the Expression.
outputBlock.Text += newArrayExpression.ToString() + "\n";

// This code produces the following output:
//
// new System.String[,](3, 2)
