# 7.5.3 Parenthesized expressions

Visual Studio .NET 2003

A parenthesized-expression consists of an expression enclosed in parentheses.

parenthesized-expression:
(   expression   )

A parenthesized-expression is evaluated by evaluating the expression within the parentheses. If the expression within the parentheses denotes a namespace, type, or method group, a compile-time error occurs. Otherwise, the result of the parenthesized-expression is the result of the evaluation of the contained expression.
