CodePropertySetValueReferenceExpression Class

Represents the value argument of a property set method call within a property set method.

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

public class CodePropertySetValueReferenceExpression : CodeExpression

CodePropertySetValueReferenceExpression represents the value argument of a property set method call within a property set method declaration.

A property set method typically assigns or uses the value assigned to the property. Within the property set method, this value is represented by an implicit variable represented in CodeDOM by a CodePropertySetValueReferenceExpression.

This example demonstrates use of a CodePropertySetValueReferenceExpression to represent the value argument passed to a property set value statement block.

// Declares a type.
CodeTypeDeclaration type1 = new CodeTypeDeclaration("Type1");

// Declares a constructor.
CodeConstructor constructor1 = new CodeConstructor();
constructor1.Attributes = MemberAttributes.Public;
type1.Members.Add( constructor1 );

// Declares an integer field.
CodeMemberField field1 = new CodeMemberField("System.Int32", "integerField");
type1.Members.Add( field1 );

// Declares a property.
CodeMemberProperty property1 = new CodeMemberProperty();
// Declares a property get statement to return the value of the integer field.
property1.GetStatements.Add( new CodeMethodReturnStatement( new CodeFieldReferenceExpression(new CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "integerField") ) );
// Declares a property set statement to set the value to the integer field. 
// The CodePropertySetValueReferenceExpression represents the value argument passed to the property set statement.
property1.SetStatements.Add( new CodeAssignStatement( new CodeFieldReferenceExpression(new CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "integerField"), 
                                    new CodePropertySetValueReferenceExpression() ) );
type1.Members.Add( property1 );

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

//    public class Type1  
//    { 
//        private int integerField; 
//        public Type1()  
//        { 
//        } 
//        private int integerProperty  
//        { 
//            get  
//            { 
//                return this.integerField; 
//            } 
//            set  
//            { 
//                this.integerField = value; 
//            } 
//        } 
//    }
