The CodeTypeParameter class represents a type parameter in the declaration of a generic type or method.

A generic type or method declaration contains one or more unspecified types known as type parameters. A type parameter name stands for the type within the body of the generic declaration. For example, the generic declaration for the List<'T> class contains the type parameter T.

For more information on generics, see Generics in the .NET Framework Class Library (C# Programming Guide).

The following code example shows the use of the CodeTypeParameter class to create a CodeDOM graph to generate an application containing generics code.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
