CodeMemberField Class

Represents a declaration for a field of a type.

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

public class CodeMemberField : CodeTypeMember

CodeMemberField can be used to represent the declaration for a field of a type.

The following example demonstrates use of a CodeMemberField to declare a field of type string named testStringField.

// Declares a type to contain a field and a constructor method.
CodeTypeDeclaration type1 = new CodeTypeDeclaration("FieldTest");

// Declares a field of type String named testStringField.
CodeMemberField field1 = new CodeMemberField("System.String", "TestStringField");
type1.Members.Add( field1 );

// Declares an empty type constructor.
CodeConstructor constructor1 = new CodeConstructor();
constructor1.Attributes = MemberAttributes.Public;            
type1.Members.Add( constructor1 );

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

//    public class FieldTest  
//    { 
//      private string testStringField; 
//        public FieldTest()  
//        { 
//        }                             
//    }            
// This example demonstrates declaring a public constant type member field. 

// When declaring a public constant type member field, you must set a particular 
// access and scope mask to the member attributes of the field in order for the 
// code generator to properly generate the field as a constant field. 

// Declares an integer field using a CodeMemberField
CodeMemberField constPublicField = new CodeMemberField(typeof(int), "testConstPublicField");

// Resets the access and scope mask bit flags of the member attributes of the field 
// before setting the member attributes of the field to public and constant.
constPublicField.Attributes = (constPublicField.Attributes & ~MemberAttributes.AccessMask & ~MemberAttributes.ScopeMask) | MemberAttributes.Public | MemberAttributes.Const;

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