CSharpCodeProvider.GenerateCodeFromMember Method (CodeTypeMember, TextWriter, CodeGeneratorOptions)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Generates code for the specified class member using the specified text writer and code generator options.

Namespace:   Microsoft.CSharp
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public override void GenerateCodeFromMember(
	CodeTypeMember member,
	TextWriter writer,
	CodeGeneratorOptions options


Type: System.CodeDom.CodeTypeMember

A CodeTypeMember to generate code for.

Type: System.IO.TextWriter

The TextWriter to write to.

Type: System.CodeDom.Compiler.CodeGeneratorOptions

The CodeGeneratorOptions to use when generating the code.

Members are generated differently depending on their context. For example, a method in an interface or a field in an enumeration is generated differently than a method or field on a class. This implementation generates code for a member in the class context.

The following code example shows the use of the GenerateCodeFromMember method to create a code fragment to be used in a CodeDOM graph. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the GenerateCodeFromMember method of the CodeDomProvider class.

static void GenCodeFromMember(CodeDomProvider provider, CodeGeneratorOptions options)
    options.BracingStyle = "C";
    CodeMemberMethod method1 = new CodeMemberMethod();
    method1.Name = "ReturnString";
    method1.Attributes = MemberAttributes.Public;
    method1.ReturnType = new CodeTypeReference("System.String");
    method1.Parameters.Add(new CodeParameterDeclarationExpression("System.String", "text"));
    method1.Statements.Add(new CodeMethodReturnStatement(new CodeArgumentReferenceExpression("text")));
    StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();
    provider.GenerateCodeFromMember(method1, sw, options);
    snippetMethod = new CodeSnippetTypeMember(sw.ToString());
