Represents a reference to the value of a property.


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

public class CodePropertyReferenceExpression : CodeExpression

The CodePropertyReferenceExpression type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodePropertyReferenceExpression()Initializes a new instance of the CodePropertyReferenceExpression class.
Public methodCodePropertyReferenceExpression(CodeExpression, String)Initializes a new instance of the CodePropertyReferenceExpression class using the specified target object and property name.

Public propertyPropertyNameGets or sets the name of the property to reference.
Public propertyTargetObjectGets or sets the object that contains the property to reference.
Public propertyUserDataGets the user-definable data for the current object. (Inherited from CodeObject.)

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.)

CodePropertyReferenceExpression can be used to represent a reference to the value of a property.

The TargetObject property specifies the object that contains the property to reference. The PropertyName property specifies the name of the property to reference.

This object does not have a property to indicate whether the reference is used in a get or set. If the property reference occurs on the left, assigned to, side of an assignment statement, then it is a set.

The following example code demonstrates use of a CodePropertyReferenceExpression to refer to a property.

CodePropertyReferenceExpression propertyRef1 = 
    new CodePropertyReferenceExpression(new CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "TestProperty");

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

//    this.TestProperty
