Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

CodeCastExpression can be used to represent an expression cast to a different data type or interface.

The Expression property indicates the CodeExpression to cast. The TargetType property indicates the type to cast to.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] This example demonstrates using a CodeCastExpression to cast a System.Int32 value to a System.Int64 data type.

[Visual Basic] 
' This CodeCastExpression casts an Int32 of 1000 to an Int64.        
Dim castExpression As New CodeCastExpression( _
    "System.Int64", New CodePrimitiveExpression(1000) )
    
' A Visual Basic code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

' CType(1000,Long)

[C#] 
// This CodeCastExpression casts an Int32 of 1000 to an Int64.        
CodeCastExpression castExpression = new CodeCastExpression(
    // targetType parameter indicating the target type of the cast.
    "System.Int64",
    // The CodeExpression to cast, here an Int32 value of 1000.
    new CodePrimitiveExpression(1000) );    

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

// ((long)(1000));

[C++] 
// This CodeCastExpression casts an Int32 of 1000 to an Int64.        
CodeCastExpression* castExpression = new CodeCastExpression(
    // targetType parameter indicating the target type of the cast.
    S"System.Int64",
    // The CodeExpression to cast, here an Int32 value of 1000.
    new CodePrimitiveExpression(__box(1000)) );    

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

// ((long)(1000));
