CodeMethodReferenceExpression Class

Represents a reference to a method.


Namespace:  System.CodeDom
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public ref class CodeMethodReferenceExpression : public CodeExpression

The CodeMethodReferenceExpression type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeMethodReferenceExpression()Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodReferenceExpression class.
Public methodCodeMethodReferenceExpression(CodeExpression, String)Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodReferenceExpression class using the specified target object and method name.
Public methodCodeMethodReferenceExpression(CodeExpression, String, array<CodeTypeReference>)Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodReferenceExpression class using the specified target object, method name, and generic type arguments.

Public propertyMethodNameGets or sets the name of the method to reference.
Public propertyTargetObjectGets or sets the expression that indicates the method to reference.
Public propertyTypeArgumentsGets the type arguments for the current generic method reference expression.
Public propertyUserDataGets the user-definable data for the current object. (Inherited from CodeObject.)

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

A CodeMethodReferenceExpression can be used to represent an expression of the form Object.Method.

The TargetObject property indicates the object that contains the method. The MethodName property indicates the name of the method.

A CodeMethodReferenceExpression is used with a CodeMethodInvokeExpression to indicate the method to invoke, and with a CodeDelegateCreateExpression to indicate the method to handle the event.

The following code example uses a CodeMethodReferenceExpression to refer to a method:

// Invokes the TestMethod method of the current type object.
CodeMethodReferenceExpression^ methodRef1 = gcnew CodeMethodReferenceExpression( gcnew CodeThisReferenceExpression,"TestMethod" );
CodeMethodInvokeExpression^ invoke1 = gcnew CodeMethodInvokeExpression( methodRef1,temp1 );

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code: 
//        this.TestMethod();
