Represents an expression that has a unary operator.
Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
Gets a value that indicates whether the expression tree node can be reduced.(Overrides Expression.CanReduce.)
Gets a value that indicates whether the expression tree node represents a lifted call to an operator.
Gets a value that indicates whether the expression tree node represents a lifted call to an operator whose return type is lifted to a nullable type.
Gets the implementing method for the unary operation.
Gets the operand of the unary operation.
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Reduces the expression node to a simpler expression. (Overrides Expression.Reduce().)
Reduces this node to a simpler expression. If CanReduce returns true, this should return a valid expression. This method can return another node which itself must be reduced.(Inherited from Expression.)
Reduces the expression to a known node type (that is not an Extension node) or just returns the expression if it is already a known type.(Inherited from Expression.)
Creates a new expression that is like this one, but using the supplied children. If all of the children are the same, it will return this expression.
Reduces the node and then calls the visitor delegate on the reduced expression. The method throws an exception if the node is not reducible.(Inherited from Expression.)
The following table summarizes the factory methods that can be used to create athat has a specific node type.
In addition, the MakeUnary methods can also be used to create a . These factory methods can be used to create a of any node type that represents a unary operation. The parameter of these methods that is of type NodeType specifies the desired node type.
The following example creates aobject that represents the reference conversion of a non-nullable integer expression to the nullable integer type.
// Create a UnaryExpression that represents a // conversion of an int to an int?. System.Linq.Expressions.UnaryExpression typeAsExpression = System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.TypeAs( System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.Constant(34, typeof(int)), typeof(int?)); Console.WriteLine(typeAsExpression.ToString()); // This code produces the following output: // // (34 As Nullable`1)
