CodePrimitiveExpression Class

Represents a primitive data type value.


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

public class CodePrimitiveExpression : CodeExpression

The CodePrimitiveExpression type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodePrimitiveExpression()Initializes a new instance of the CodePrimitiveExpression class.
Public methodCodePrimitiveExpression(Object)Initializes a new instance of the CodePrimitiveExpression class using the specified object.

Public propertyUserDataGets the user-definable data for the current object. (Inherited from CodeObject.)
Public propertyValueGets or sets the primitive data type to represent.

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.)

CodePrimitiveExpression can be used to represent an expression that indicates a primitive data type value.

The Value property specifies the primitive data type value to represent.

Primitive data types that can be represented using CodePrimitiveExpression include null; string; 16-, 32-, and 64-bit signed integers; and single-precision and double-precision floating-point numbers.

The following example demonstrates use of CodePrimitiveExpression to represent values of several primitive types.

// Represents a string.
CodePrimitiveExpression stringPrimitive = new CodePrimitiveExpression("Test String");
// Represents an integer.
CodePrimitiveExpression intPrimitive = new CodePrimitiveExpression(10);
// Represents a floating point number.
CodePrimitiveExpression floatPrimitive = new CodePrimitiveExpression(1.03189);
// Represents a null value expression.
CodePrimitiveExpression nullPrimitive = new CodePrimitiveExpression(null);
