CodeMethodInvokeExpression Class

Represents an expression that invokes a method.

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

public class CodeMethodInvokeExpression : CodeExpression

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);
