Public Property EvaluateAsExpression As Boolean

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the variable contains an expression; otherwise, false.

Expressions and variables can be used to control the flow of a package. For more information, see Add Expressions to Precedence Constraints.

The following example sets the EvaluateAsExpression flag to show that the variable contains an expression, and then can use the Expression property.

Shared  Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)
        Dim p As Package =  New Package() 
        p.Variables.Add("x", False, "", 1)
        Dim v As Variable =  p.Variables.Add("y",False,"",1) 
        v.Expression = "@x + 10"
        v.EvaluateAsExpression = True
        If v.Value.ToString() = "11" Then
            Console.WriteLine("Value was 11")
            Console.WriteLine("Value was not 11")
        End If
End Sub

Sample Output:

Value was 11
