Expression.Loop Method (Expression, LabelTarget)

Creates a LoopExpression with the given body and break target.

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

public static LoopExpression Loop(
	Expression body,
	LabelTarget break
)

Parameters

body
Type: System.Linq.Expressions.Expression
The body of the loop.
break
Type: System.Linq.Expressions.LabelTarget
The break target used by the loop body.

The following example demonstrates how to create a block expression that contains a LoopExpression object.


// 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.Loop(
           Expression.IfThenElse(
               Expression.GreaterThan(value, Expression.Constant(1)),
               Expression.MultiplyAssign(result,
                   Expression.PostDecrementAssign(value)),
               Expression.Break(label, result)
           ),
       label
    )
);

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

Console.WriteLine(factorial);

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