Public Class CodeMethodReferenceExpression
	Inherits CodeExpression

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodCodeMethodReferenceExpression()

Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodReferenceExpression class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodCodeMethodReferenceExpression(CodeExpression, String)

Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodReferenceExpression class using the specified target object and method name.

System_CAPS_pubmethodCodeMethodReferenceExpression(CodeExpression, String, CodeTypeReference())

Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodReferenceExpression class using the specified target object, method name, and generic type arguments.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyMethodName

Gets or sets the name of the method to reference.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTargetObject

Gets or sets the expression that indicates the method to reference.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeArguments

Gets the type arguments for the current generic method reference expression.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyUserData

Gets the user-definable data for the current object.(Inherited from CodeObject.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

A CodeMethodReferenceExpression can be used to represent an expression of the form Object.Method.

The TargetObject property indicates the object that contains the method. The MethodName property indicates the name of the method.

A CodeMethodReferenceExpression is used with a CodeMethodInvokeExpression to indicate the method to invoke, and with a CodeDelegateCreateExpression to indicate the method to handle the event.

The following code example uses a CodeMethodReferenceExpression to refer to a method:

' Invokes the TestMethod method of the current type object.
Dim methodRef1 As New CodeMethodReferenceExpression(New CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "TestMethod")
Dim invoke1 As New CodeMethodInvokeExpression(methodRef1, New CodeParameterDeclarationExpression() {})

' A Visual Basic code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

'       Me.TestMethod
