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

public class CodeMemberMethod : CodeTypeMember

The CodeMemberMethod type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeMemberMethodInitializes a new instance of the CodeMemberMethod class.

Public propertyAttributesGets or sets the attributes of the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyCommentsGets the collection of comments for the type member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyCustomAttributesGets or sets the custom attributes of the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyEndDirectivesGets the end directives for the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyImplementationTypesGets the data types of the interfaces implemented by this method, unless it is a private method implementation, which is indicated by the PrivateImplementationType property.
Public propertyLinePragmaGets or sets the line on which the type member statement occurs. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyNameGets or sets the name of the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyParametersGets the parameter declarations for the method.
Public propertyPrivateImplementationTypeGets or sets the data type of the interface this method, if private, implements a method of, if any.
Public propertyReturnTypeGets or sets the data type of the return value of the method.
Public propertyReturnTypeCustomAttributesGets the custom attributes of the return type of the method.
Public propertyStartDirectivesGets the start directives for the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyStatementsGets the statements within the method.
Public propertyTypeParametersGets the type parameters for the current generic method.
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.)

Public eventPopulateImplementationTypesAn event that will be raised the first time the ImplementationTypes collection is accessed.
Public eventPopulateParametersAn event that will be raised the first time the Parameters collection is accessed.
Public eventPopulateStatementsAn event that will be raised the first time the Statements collection is accessed.

CodeMemberMethod can be used to represent the declaration for a method.

The ReturnType property specifies the data type of the method's return value. The Parameters property contains the method's parameters. The Statements property contains the statements of the method.

The following example demonstrates use of a CodeMemberMethod to declare a method that accepts a parameter and returns a value.

// Defines a method that returns a string passed to it.
CodeMemberMethod method1 = new CodeMemberMethod();            
method1.Name = "ReturnString";
method1.ReturnType = new CodeTypeReference("System.String");
method1.Parameters.Add( new CodeParameterDeclarationExpression("System.String", "text") );
method1.Statements.Add( new CodeMethodReturnStatement( new CodeArgumentReferenceExpression("text") ) );            

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

//    private string ReturnString(string text) 
//    {
//        return text;
//    }
