Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

A CodeEntryPointMethod is a CodeMemberMethod that represents the entry point method of an executable.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] This example demonstrates using a CodeEntryPointMethod to indicate the method to start program execution at.

[Visual Basic] 
' Builds a Hello World Program Graph using System.CodeDom objects
Public Shared Function BuildHelloWorldGraph() As CodeCompileUnit
   ' Create a new CodeCompileUnit to contain the program graph
   Dim CompileUnit As New CodeCompileUnit()
   
   ' Declare a new namespace object and name it
   Dim Samples As New CodeNamespace("Samples")
   ' Add the namespace object to the compile unit
   CompileUnit.Namespaces.Add(Samples)
   
   ' Add a new namespace import for the System namespace
   Samples.Imports.Add(New CodeNamespaceImport("System"))
   
   ' Declare a new type object and name it
   Dim Class1 As New CodeTypeDeclaration("Class1")
   ' Add the new type to the namespace object's type collection
   Samples.Types.Add(Class1)
   
   ' Declare a new code entry point method
   Dim Start As New CodeEntryPointMethod()
   ' Create a new method invoke expression
   Dim cs1 As New CodeMethodInvokeExpression(New CodeTypeReferenceExpression("System.Console"), "WriteLine", New CodePrimitiveExpression("Hello World!"))
   ' Call the System.Console.WriteLine method
   ' Pass a primitive string parameter to the WriteLine method
   ' Add the new method code statement
   Start.Statements.Add(New CodeExpressionStatement(cs1))
   
   ' Add the code entry point method to the type's members collection
   Class1.Members.Add(Start)
   
   Return CompileUnit

End Function 'BuildHelloWorldGraph
