[PermissionSetAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Name = "FullTrust")]
[PermissionSetAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Name = "FullTrust")]
public abstract class CodeGenerator : ICodeGenerator

This is a useful base class for code generators to derive from. Code generators are capable of rendering source code in a specific language according to the structure of a Code Document Object Model (CodeDOM) graph. This class provides many functions and methods to generate specific types of code from a CodeDOM graph.

NoteNote:

This class contains a link demand and an inheritance demand at the class level that applies to all members. A SecurityException is thrown when either the immediate caller or the derived class does not have full-trust permission. For details about security demands, see Link Demands and Inheritance Demands.
