CodeExpressionStatement Class

Represents a statement that consists of a single expression.

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

public class CodeExpressionStatement : CodeStatement

A CodeExpressionStatement contains a CodeExpression object, and it can be added to a CodeStatementCollection object, allowing some expressions to stand alone. For example, a CodeMethodInvokeExpression contained by a CodeExpressionStatement can represent a method call without a return value.

The following example demonstrates how to create an instance of the CodeExpressionStatement class by using a CodeExpression object.

// Creates a code expression for a CodeExpressionStatement to contain.
CodeExpression invokeExpression = new CodeMethodInvokeExpression( 
    new CodeTypeReferenceExpression("Console"), 
    "Write", new CodePrimitiveExpression("Example string") );

// Creates a statement using a code expression.
CodeExpressionStatement expressionStatement;
expressionStatement = new CodeExpressionStatement( invokeExpression );                        

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

// Console.Write( "Example string" );


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