The following example demonstrates how to create a MethodCallExpression object that prints the value of a ParameterExpression object.

// Add the following directive to the file:
// using System.Linq.Expressions;  

// Creating a parameter for the expression tree.
ParameterExpression param = Expression.Parameter(typeof(int));

// Creating an expression for the method call and specifying its parameter.
MethodCallExpression methodCall = Expression.Call(
    typeof(Console).GetMethod("WriteLine", new Type[] { typeof(int) }),

// The following statement first creates an expression tree,
// then compiles it, and then runs it.
    new ParameterExpression[] { param }

// This code example produces the following output:
// 10
