Expression::Switch Method (Expression, Expression, array<SwitchCase>)

Creates a SwitchExpression that represents a switch statement that has a default case.

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

static SwitchExpression^ Switch(
	Expression^ switchValue, 
	Expression^ defaultBody, 
	... array<SwitchCase^>^ cases


Type: System.Linq.Expressions::Expression

The value to be tested against each case.

Type: System.Linq.Expressions::Expression

The result of the switch if switchValue does not match any of the cases.

Type: array<System.Linq.Expressions::SwitchCase>

The set of cases for this switch expression.

All SwitchCase objects in a SwitchExpression object must have the same type, unless the SwitchExpression has the type void.

Each SwitchCase object has an implicit break statement, which means that there is no implicit fall through from one case label to another.

If switchValue does not match any of the cases, the default case represented by defaultBody is run.

The following example demonstrates how to create an expression that represents a swtich statement that has a default case.
