The VisualBasicReference<TResult> type exposes the following members.

Public methodVisualBasicReference<TResult>()Initializes a new instance of the VisualBasicReference<TResult> class.
Public methodVisualBasicReference<TResult>(String)Initializes a new instance of the VisualBasicReference<TResult> class using the specific expression.

Protected propertyCacheIdGets the identifier of the cache that is unique within the scope of the workflow definition. (Inherited from Activity.)
Public propertyDisplayNameGets or sets an optional friendly name that is used for debugging, validation, exception handling, and tracking. (Inherited from Activity.)
Public propertyExpressionTextGets or set the Visual Basic expression represented by this VisualBasicReference<TResult>.
Public propertyIdGets an identifier that is unique in the scope of the workflow definition. (Inherited from Activity.)
Protected propertyImplementationVersionGets or sets the implementation version of the activity. (Inherited from CodeActivity<TResult>.)
Public propertyLanguageGets the language used in the reference.
Public propertyRequiresCompilationGets whether the reference requires compilation.
Public propertyResultGets or sets the result argument for the Activity<TResult>. (Inherited from Activity<TResult>.)
Public propertyResultTypeWhen implemented in a derived class, gets the type of an activity OutArgument. (Inherited from ActivityWithResult.)

Public methodConvertToStringConverts the VisualBasicReference<TResult> to a String.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetExpressionTreeGets the expression tree used in the reference.
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodShouldSerializeDisplayNameIndicates whether the DisplayName property should be serialized. (Inherited from Activity.)
