UnaryExpression Class

Represents an expression that has a unary operator.

System.Object
  System.Linq.Expressions.Expression
    System.Linq.Expressions.UnaryExpression

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

public sealed class UnaryExpression : Expression

The UnaryExpression type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public propertyCanReduceGets a value that indicates whether the expression tree node can be reduced. (Overrides Expression.CanReduce.)
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneIsLiftedGets a value that indicates whether the expression tree node represents a lifted call to an operator.
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneIsLiftedToNullGets a value that indicates whether the expression tree node represents a lifted call to an operator whose return type is lifted to a nullable type.
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneMethodGets the implementing method for the unary operation.
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneNodeTypeReturns the node type of this Expression. (Overrides Expression.NodeType.)

In Silverlight for Windows Phone Windows Phone OS 7.1, this member is inherited from Expression.NodeType.


In XNA Framework Windows Phone OS 7.0, this member is inherited from Expression.NodeType.
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneOperandGets the operand of the unary operation.
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneTypeGets the static type of the expression that this Expression represents. (Overrides Expression.Type.)

In Silverlight for Windows Phone Windows Phone OS 7.1, this member is inherited from Expression.Type.


In XNA Framework Windows Phone OS 7.0, this member is inherited from Expression.Type.

  NameDescription
Protected methodAcceptDispatches to the specific visit method for this node type. For example, MethodCallExpression calls the VisitMethodCall. (Inherited from Expression.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReduceReduces the expression node to a simpler expression. (Overrides Expression.Reduce().)
Public methodReduceAndCheckReduces this node to a simpler expression. If CanReduce returns true, this should return a valid expression. This method can return another node which itself must be reduced. (Inherited from Expression.)
Public methodReduceExtensionsReduces the expression to a known node type (that is not an Extension node) or just returns the expression if it is already a known type. (Inherited from Expression.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneToStringReturns a textual representation of the Expression. (Inherited from Expression.)
Public methodUpdateCreates a new expression that is like this one, but using the supplied children. If all of the children are the same, it will return this expression.
Protected methodVisitChildrenReduces the node and then calls the visitor delegate on the reduced expression. The method throws an exception if the node is not reducible. (Inherited from Expression.)

The following table summarizes the factory methods that can be used to create a UnaryExpression that has a specific node type.

In addition, the MakeUnary methods can also be used to create a UnaryExpression. These factory methods can be used to create a UnaryExpression of any node type that represents a unary operation. The parameter of these methods that is of type NodeType specifies the desired node type.

The following example creates a UnaryExpression object that represents the reference conversion of a non-nullable integer expression to the nullable integer type.


// Create a UnaryExpression that represents a
// conversion of an int to an int?.
System.Linq.Expressions.UnaryExpression typeAsExpression =
    System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.TypeAs(
        System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.Constant(34, typeof(int)),
        typeof(int?));

outputBlock.Text += typeAsExpression.ToString() + "\n";

// This code produces the following output:
//
// (34 As Nullable`1)
