CodeSnippetExpression Class

Represents a literal expression.

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

public class CodeSnippetExpression : CodeExpression

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");


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
