Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

CodeTypeConstructor can be used to represent the static constructor for a class. A static constructor is called once when the type is loaded.

Note   Not all languages support static constructors. Support for static constructors can be checked by calling Supports with the StaticConstructors flag to determine if static constructors are supported by the code generator for a particular language.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example demonstrates use of a CodeTypeConstructor to declare a static constructor for a type.

[Visual Basic] 
' Declares a new type for a static constructor.
Dim type1 As New CodeTypeDeclaration("Type1")
' Declares a static constructor.
Dim constructor2 As New CodeTypeConstructor()
' Adds the static constructor to the type.
type1.Members.Add(constructor2)

' A Visual Basic code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

'   Public Class Type1
'
'       Shared Sub New()            
'       End Sub
'   End Class

[C#] 
// Declares a new type for a static constructor.
CodeTypeDeclaration type1 = new CodeTypeDeclaration("Type1");
// Declares a static constructor.
CodeTypeConstructor constructor2 = new CodeTypeConstructor();
// Adds the static constructor to the type.
type1.Members.Add( constructor2 );

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

//    public class Type1 
//    {
//
//        static Type1() 
//        {
//        }       
//    }

[C++] 
// Declares a new type for a static constructor.
CodeTypeDeclaration* type1 = new CodeTypeDeclaration(S"Type1");
// Declares a static constructor.
CodeTypeConstructor* constructor2 = new CodeTypeConstructor();
// Adds the static constructor to the type.
type1->Members->Add( constructor2 );

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

//    public class Type1 
//    {
//
//        static Type1() 
//        {
//        }       
//    }
