CodeBinaryOperatorExpression Class

Represents an expression that consists of a binary operation between two expressions.


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

public class CodeBinaryOperatorExpression : CodeExpression

The CodeBinaryOperatorExpression type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeBinaryOperatorExpression()Initializes a new instance of the CodeBinaryOperatorExpression class.
Public methodCodeBinaryOperatorExpression(CodeExpression, CodeBinaryOperatorType, CodeExpression)Initializes a new instance of the CodeBinaryOperatorExpression class using the specified parameters.

Public propertyLeftGets or sets the code expression on the left of the operator.
Public propertyOperatorGets or sets the operator in the binary operator expression.
Public propertyRightGets or sets the code expression on the right of the operator.
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.)

CodeBinaryOperatorExpression can be used to represent code expressions that include a binary operator. Some examples of binary operators are equality (==), addition (+), and bitwise (|) operators. The CodeBinaryOperatorType enumeration represents a set of basic, commonly used binary operators that are supported in many languages.

This example demonstrates use of a CodeBinaryOperatorExpression to add two numbers together.

            // This CodeBinaryOperatorExpression represents the addition of 1 and 2.
            CodeBinaryOperatorExpression addMethod = new CodeBinaryOperatorExpression(

                // Left operand.
                new CodePrimitiveExpression(1),

                // CodeBinaryOperatorType enumeration value of Add.

                // Right operand.
                new CodePrimitiveExpression(2) );    

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

            // (1 + 2)
