The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Note: This API is now obsolete.

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

[ObsoleteAttribute("Callers should not use the ICodeCompiler 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 ICodeCompiler CreateCompiler()

Return Value

Type: System.CodeDom.Compiler.ICodeCompiler

An ICodeCompiler that can be used for compilation of System.CodeDom based source code representations.

This method is obsolete in the .NET Framework 2.0. The recommended alternative is to call the ICodeCompiler methods that are directly available in the code provider.

Notes to Inheritors:

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