Namespace/Module Path: Microsoft.FSharp.Quotations.Patterns

Assembly: FSharp.Core (in FSharp.Core.dll)

// Signature:
( |UnionCaseTest|_| ) : (input:Expr) -> (Expr * UnionCaseInfo) option


Type: Expr

The input expression to match against.

The formal return type is (Expr * UnionCaseInfo) option. The option indicates whether the input results in a match. In a pattern matching expression, the input is decomposed into a tuple of two elements. The first element is the expression that represents the target of the test and the second element is the UnionCaseInfo object that represents the union case.

This function is named UnionCaseTestPattern in the .NET Framework assembly. If you are accessing the member from a .NET Framework language other than F#, or through reflection, use this name.
