System_CAPS_pubmethodLink<T>(IEnumerable<T>)

Initializes a new instance of the Link<T> structure by referencing the source.

System_CAPS_pubmethodLink<T>(Link<T>)

Initializes a new instance of the Link<T> structure by copying the internal state from another Link<T> instance.

Specifies whether the Link<T> has loaded or assigned a value.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHasValue

Gets a value that specifies whether the source has a value.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyValue

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)
