CodeAssignStatement Class

Represents a simple assignment statement.


Namespace:  System.CodeDom
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public class CodeAssignStatement : CodeStatement

The CodeAssignStatement type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeAssignStatement()Initializes a new instance of the CodeAssignStatement class.
Public methodCodeAssignStatement(CodeExpression, CodeExpression)Initializes a new instance of the CodeAssignStatement class using the specified expressions.

Public propertyEndDirectivesGets a CodeDirectiveCollection object that contains end directives. (Inherited from CodeStatement.)
Public propertyLeftGets or sets the expression representing the object or reference to assign to.
Public propertyLinePragmaGets or sets the line on which the code statement occurs. (Inherited from CodeStatement.)
Public propertyRightGets or sets the expression representing the object or reference to assign.
Public propertyStartDirectivesGets a CodeDirectiveCollection object that contains start directives. (Inherited from CodeStatement.)
Public propertyUserDataGets the user-definable data for the current object. (Inherited from CodeObject.)

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

CodeAssignStatement can be used to represent a statement that assigns the value of an object to another object, or a reference to another reference. Simple assignment statements are usually of the form " value1 = value2 ", where value1 is the object being assigned to, and value2 is being assigned. The Left property indicates the object to assign to. The Right property indicates the object to assign.

The following code creates a CodeAssignStatement that assigns the value 10 to an integer variable named i :

// Assigns the value of the 10 to the integer variable "i".
CodeAssignStatement as1 = new CodeAssignStatement(new CodeVariableReferenceExpression("i"), new CodePrimitiveExpression(10));

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

// i=10;
