NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodCodeCastExpression()

Initializes a new instance of the CodeCastExpression class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodCodeCastExpression(CodeTypeReference^, CodeExpression^)

Initializes a new instance of the CodeCastExpression class using the specified destination type and expression.

System_CAPS_pubmethodCodeCastExpression(String^, CodeExpression^)

Initializes a new instance of the CodeCastExpression class using the specified destination type and expression.

System_CAPS_pubmethodCodeCastExpression(Type^, CodeExpression^)

Initializes a new instance of the CodeCastExpression class using the specified destination type and expression.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyExpression

Gets or sets the expression to cast.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTargetType

Gets or sets the destination type of the cast.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyUserData

Gets the user-definable data for the current object.(Inherited from CodeObject.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object^)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

CodeCastExpression can be used to represent an expression cast to a different data type or interface.

The Expression property indicates the CodeExpression to cast. The TargetType property indicates the type to cast to.

This example demonstrates using a CodeCastExpression to cast a System.Int32 value to a System.Int64 data type.

// This CodeCastExpression casts an Int32 of 1000 to an Int64.        

// targetType parameter indicating the target type of the cast.
// The CodeExpression to cast, here an Int32 value of 1000.
CodeCastExpression^ castExpression = gcnew CodeCastExpression( "System.Int64",gcnew CodePrimitiveExpression( 1000 ) );

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:
// ((long)(1000));
