CodeSnippetTypeMember Class

Represents a member of a type using a literal code fragment.


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

public class CodeSnippetTypeMember : CodeTypeMember

The CodeSnippetTypeMember type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeSnippetTypeMember()Initializes a new instance of the CodeSnippetTypeMember class.
Public methodCodeSnippetTypeMember(String)Initializes a new instance of the CodeSnippetTypeMember class using the specified text.

Public propertyAttributesGets or sets the attributes of the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyCommentsGets the collection of comments for the type member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyCustomAttributesGets or sets the custom attributes of the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyEndDirectivesGets the end directives for the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyLinePragmaGets or sets the line on which the type member statement occurs. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyNameGets or sets the name of the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyStartDirectivesGets the start directives for the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyTextGets or sets the literal code fragment for the type member.
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.)

CodeSnippetTypeMember can represent a member of a type using a literal code fragment that is included directly in the source without modification. This code can be included in the type declaration.

A CodeSnippetTypeMember stores a section of code, exactly in its original format, as a string. The CodeDOM does not translate literal code fragments. Literal code fragments are stored and output in their original format. CodeDOM objects that contain literal code are provided so developers can encapsulate code that is already in the target language.

The Text property contains the literal code for the type member.

The following example demonstrates the use of the CodeSnippetTypeMember class to store literal code in a string format. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the GenerateCodeFromMember method.

static void GenCodeFromMember(CodeDomProvider provider, CodeGeneratorOptions options)
    options.BracingStyle = "C";
    CodeMemberMethod method1 = new CodeMemberMethod();
    method1.Name = "ReturnString";
    method1.Attributes = MemberAttributes.Public;
    method1.ReturnType = new CodeTypeReference("System.String");
    method1.Parameters.Add(new CodeParameterDeclarationExpression("System.String", "text"));
    method1.Statements.Add(new CodeMethodReturnStatement(new CodeArgumentReferenceExpression("text")));
    StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();
    provider.GenerateCodeFromMember(method1, sw, options);
    snippetMethod = new CodeSnippetTypeMember(sw.ToString());
