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

public class CodeObjectCreateExpression : CodeExpression

CodeObjectCreateExpression can be used to represent an expression that creates an instance of a type.

The CreateType property specifies the data type to create a new instance of. The Parameters property specifies the parameters to pass to the constructor of the type to create a new instance of.

The following example demonstrates use of CodeObjectCreateExpression to create a new instance of the System.DateTime class using the default constructor.

CodeObjectCreateExpression objectCreate1 = new CodeObjectCreateExpression( "System.DateTime", new CodeExpression[] {} );            

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

//        new System.DateTime();
