# ExpressionType Enumeration

**Visual Studio 2008**

Describes the node types for the nodes of an expression tree.

**Namespace:**System.Linq.Expressions

**Assembly:**System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

Member name | Description | |
---|---|---|

Add | A node that represents arithmetic addition without overflow checking. | |

AddChecked | A node that represents arithmetic addition with overflow checking. | |

And | A node that represents a bitwise AND operation. | |

AndAlso | A node that represents a short-circuiting conditional AND operation. | |

ArrayLength | A node that represents getting the length of a one-dimensional array. | |

ArrayIndex | A node that represents indexing into a one-dimensional array. | |

Call | A node that represents a method call. | |

Coalesce | A node that represents a null coalescing operation. | |

Conditional | A node that represents a conditional operation. | |

Constant | A node that represents an expression that has a constant value. | |

Convert | A node that represents a cast or conversion operation. If the operation is a numeric conversion, it overflows silently if the converted value does not fit the target type. | |

ConvertChecked | A node that represents a cast or conversion operation. If the operation is a numeric conversion, an exception is thrown if the converted value does not fit the target type. | |

Divide | A node that represents arithmetic division. | |

Equal | A node that represents an equality comparison. | |

ExclusiveOr | A node that represents a bitwise XOR operation. | |

GreaterThan | A node that represents a "greater than" numeric comparison. | |

GreaterThanOrEqual | A node that represents a "greater than or equal" numeric comparison. | |

Invoke | A node that represents applying a delegate or lambda expression to a list of argument expressions. | |

Lambda | A node that represents a lambda expression. | |

LeftShift | A node that represents a bitwise left-shift operation. | |

LessThan | A node that represents a "less than" numeric comparison. | |

LessThanOrEqual | A node that represents a "less than or equal" numeric comparison. | |

ListInit | A node that represents creating a new IEnumerable object and initializing it from a list of elements. | |

MemberAccess | A node that represents reading from a field or property. | |

MemberInit | A node that represents creating a new object and initializing one or more of its members. | |

Modulo | A node that represents an arithmetic remainder operation. | |

Multiply | A node that represents arithmetic multiplication without overflow checking. | |

MultiplyChecked | A node that represents arithmetic multiplication with overflow checking. | |

Negate | A node that represents an arithmetic negation operation. | |

UnaryPlus | A node that represents a unary plus operation. The result of a predefined unary plus operation is simply the value of the operand, but user-defined implementations may have non-trivial results. | |

NegateChecked | A node that represents an arithmetic negation operation that has overflow checking. | |

New | A node that represents calling a constructor to create a new object. | |

NewArrayInit | A node that represents creating a new one-dimensional array and initializing it from a list of elements. | |

NewArrayBounds | A node that represents creating a new array where the bounds for each dimension are specified. | |

Not | A node that represents a bitwise complement operation. | |

NotEqual | A node that represents an inequality comparison. | |

Or | A node that represents a bitwise OR operation. | |

OrElse | A node that represents a short-circuiting conditional OR operation. | |

Parameter | A node that represents a reference to a parameter defined in the context of the expression. | |

Power | A node that represents raising a number to a power. | |

Quote | A node that represents an expression that has a constant value of type Expression. A Quote node can contain references to parameters defined in the context of the expression it represents. | |

RightShift | A node that represents a bitwise right-shift operation. | |

Subtract | A node that represents arithmetic subtraction without overflow checking. | |

SubtractChecked | A node that represents arithmetic subtraction with overflow checking. | |

TypeAs | A node that represents an explicit reference or boxing conversion where Nothing is supplied if the conversion fails. | |

TypeIs | A node that represents a type test. |
