CodeTypeRef.CreateArrayType Method

Creates an array of a specified type, and inserts it into the code in the correct location.

Namespace: EnvDTE
Assembly: EnvDTE (in envdte.dll)

CodeTypeRef CreateArrayType (
	[OptionalAttribute] int Rank
CodeTypeRef CreateArrayType (
	/** @attribute OptionalAttribute() */ int Rank
function CreateArrayType (
	Rank : int
) : CodeTypeRef



Optional. Default value = 1. The number of dimensions in the type array.

Return Value

A CodeTypeRef object.

The returned CodeTypeRef object has a TypeKind property of vsCMTypeRefArray, and an ElementType that is a copy of the CodeTypeRef object upon which CreateArrayType was invoked. The Parent property will be Nothing because no CodeElement has a Type property that refers to the newly-created CodeTypeRef object.


The values of code model elements such as classes, structs, functions, attributes, delegates, and so forth can be non-deterministic after making certain kinds of edits, meaning that their values cannot be relied upon to always remain the same. For more information, see the section Code Model Element Values Can Change in Discovering Code with the Code Model (Visual Basic).
