Namespace:  System.Linq.Expressions
Assemblies:   System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
  System.Linq.Expressions (in System.Linq.Expressions.dll)

public:
static MemberExpression^ Property(
	Expression^ expression, 
	String^ propertyName
)

Parameters

expression
Type: System.Linq.Expressions::Expression

An Expression whose Type contains a property named propertyName. This can be nullptr for static properties.

propertyName
Type: System::String

The name of a property to be accessed.

Return Value

Type: System.Linq.Expressions::MemberExpression
A MemberExpression that has the NodeType property equal to MemberAccess, the Expression property set to expression, and the Member property set to the PropertyInfo that represents the property denoted by propertyName.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

expression or propertyName is nullptr.

ArgumentException

No property named propertyName is defined in expression.Type or its base types.

The Type property of the resulting MemberExpression is equal to the PropertyType property of the PropertyInfo that represents the property denoted by propertyName.

This method searches expression.Type and its base types for a property that has the name propertyName. Public properties are given preference over non-public properties. If a matching property is found, this method passes expression and the PropertyInfo that represents that property to Property.

The following example shows how to create an expression that represents accessing a property.
