CodeMemberProperty Class

Represents a declaration for a property of a type.

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

public class CodeMemberProperty : CodeTypeMember

CodeMemberProperty can be used to represent the declaration for a property of a type.

The Type property specifies the data type of the property. The GetStatements property contains any get statement methods for the property. The SetStatements property contains any set statement methods for the property. The Parameters property specifies any parameters for the property, such as are required for an indexer property.

The following example code demonstrates use of a CodeMemberProperty to define a string property with get and set accessors.

// Declares a property of type String named StringProperty.
CodeMemberProperty property1 = new CodeMemberProperty();
property1.Name = "StringProperty";
property1.Type = new CodeTypeReference("System.String");
property1.Attributes = MemberAttributes.Public;
property1.GetStatements.Add( new CodeMethodReturnStatement( new CodeFieldReferenceExpression(new CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "testStringField") ) );
property1.SetStatements.Add( new CodeAssignStatement( new CodeFieldReferenceExpression(new CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "testStringField"), new CodePropertySetValueReferenceExpression()));

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

//       public virtual string StringProperty  
//       { 
//              get  
//            { 
//                return this.testStringField; 
//            } 
//            set  
//            { 
//                this.testStringField = value; 
//            } 
//       }
