CodeSnippetExpression Class

Represents a literal expression.


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

public class CodeSnippetExpression : CodeExpression

The CodeSnippetExpression type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeSnippetExpression()Initializes a new instance of the CodeSnippetExpression class.
Public methodCodeSnippetExpression(String)Initializes a new instance of the CodeSnippetExpression class using the specified literal expression.

Public propertyUserDataGets the user-definable data for the current object. (Inherited from CodeObject.)
Public propertyValueGets or sets the literal string of code.

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.)

A literal expression stores the code of an expression as a literal code fragment. The CodeDOM does not translate literal code fragments. Literal code fragments are stored and output just as they are. CodeDOM objects that contain literal code are provided so developers can encapsulate code that is already in the target language.

The Value property contains the literal code for this snippet expression.

The following code example demonstrates how to create an instance of the CodeSnippetExpression class using a literal code fragment.

// Creates a CodeSnippetExpression that represents a literal string that
// can be used as an expression in a CodeDOM graph.
CodeSnippetExpression literalExpression = 
    new CodeSnippetExpression("Literal expression");
