CodeMemberMethod Class

Represents a declaration for a method of a type.

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

public class CodeMemberMethod : CodeTypeMember

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; 
//    }

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