The following example creates an ElementInit that represents the initialization of an element of a dictionary collection.


Dim tree As String = "maple"

Dim addMethod As System.Reflection.MethodInfo = _
    Type.GetType("System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2[System.Int32, System.String]").GetMethod("Add")

' Create an ElementInit that represents calling
' Dictionary(Of Integer, String).Add(tree.Length, tree).
Dim elementInit As System.Linq.Expressions.ElementInit = _
    System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.ElementInit( _
        addMethod, _
        System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.Constant(tree.Length), _
        System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.Constant(tree))

outputBlock.Text &= elementInit.ToString() & vbCrLf

' This code produces the following output:
'
' Void Add(Int32, System.String)(5,"maple")
