CodeDomProvider.CreateGenerator Method

Note: This API is now obsolete.

When overridden in a derived class, creates a new code generator.

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

[ObsoleteAttribute("Callers should not use the ICodeGenerator interface and should instead use the methods directly on the CodeDomProvider class. Those inheriting from CodeDomProvider must still implement this interface, and should exclude this warning or also obsolete this method.")]
public abstract ICodeGenerator CreateGenerator()

Return Value

Type: System.CodeDom.Compiler.ICodeGenerator
An ICodeGenerator that can be used to generate System.CodeDom based source code representations.

This method is obsolete in the .NET Framework version 2.0. The recommended alternative is to call the ICodeGenerator methods that are directly available in the CodeDomProvider class.

Notes to Inheritors

In the .NET Framework 2.0, you should implement the ICodeGenerator members in the CodeDomProvider class and throw a NotSupportedException when this method is called.
