CodeMethodInvokeExpression Class

Represents an expression that invokes a method.


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

public class CodeMethodInvokeExpression : CodeExpression

The CodeMethodInvokeExpression type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeMethodInvokeExpression()Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodInvokeExpression class.
Public methodCodeMethodInvokeExpression(CodeMethodReferenceExpression, CodeExpression[])Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodInvokeExpression class using the specified method and parameters.
Public methodCodeMethodInvokeExpression(CodeExpression, String, CodeExpression[])Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodInvokeExpression class using the specified target object, method name, and parameters.

Public propertyMethodGets or sets the method to invoke.
Public propertyParametersGets the parameters to invoke the method with.
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.)

CodeMethodInvokeExpression can be used to represent an expression that invokes a method.

The Method property specifies the method to invoke. The Parameters property indicates the parameters to pass to the method. Use a CodeDirectionExpression to specify the field direction of a parameter.

This example demonstrates using a CodeMethodInvokeExpression to invoke a method.

CodeMethodInvokeExpression methodInvoke = new CodeMethodInvokeExpression(
    // targetObject that contains the method to invoke.
    new CodeThisReferenceExpression(),
    // methodName indicates the method to invoke.
    // parameters array contains the parameters for the method.
    new CodeExpression[] { new CodePrimitiveExpression(true) } );

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

// this.Dispose(true);
