NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodCodeMethodReturnStatement()

Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodReturnStatement class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodCodeMethodReturnStatement(CodeExpression)

Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodReturnStatement class using the specified expression.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyEndDirectives

Gets a CodeDirectiveCollection object that contains end directives.(Inherited from CodeStatement.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyExpression

Gets or sets the return value.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLinePragma

Gets or sets the line on which the code statement occurs. (Inherited from CodeStatement.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyStartDirectives

Gets a CodeDirectiveCollection object that contains start directives.(Inherited from CodeStatement.)

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.)

CodeMethodReturnStatement can be used to represent a return value statement. The Expression property specifies the value to return.

The following example demonstrates use of a CodeMethodReturnStatement to return a value from a method.

// 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;
//    }
