CodeStatementCollection Class

Represents a collection of CodeStatement objects.

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

public class CodeStatementCollection : CollectionBase

The CodeStatementCollection class provides a simple collection object that can be used to store a set of CodeStatement objects.

The following example demonstrates how to use the CodeStatementCollection class. The example creates a new instance of the class and uses several methods to add statements to the collection, return their index, and add or remove statements at a specific index point.

// Creates an empty CodeStatementCollection.
CodeStatementCollection collection = new CodeStatementCollection();

// Adds a CodeStatement to the collection.
collection.Add( new CodeCommentStatement("Test comment statement") );

// Adds an array of CodeStatement objects to the collection.
CodeStatement[] statements = { 
                new CodeCommentStatement("Test comment statement"), 
                new CodeCommentStatement("Test comment statement")};
collection.AddRange( statements );

// Adds a collection of CodeStatement objects to the collection.
CodeStatement testStatement = new CodeCommentStatement("Test comment statement");
CodeStatementCollection statementsCollection = new CodeStatementCollection();
statementsCollection.Add( new CodeCommentStatement("Test comment statement") );
statementsCollection.Add( new CodeCommentStatement("Test comment statement") );
statementsCollection.Add( testStatement );

collection.AddRange( statementsCollection );

// Tests for the presence of a CodeStatement in the  
// collection, and retrieves its index if it is found. 
int itemIndex = -1;
if( collection.Contains( testStatement ) )
    itemIndex = collection.IndexOf( testStatement );

// Copies the contents of the collection beginning at index 0 to the specified CodeStatement array. 
// 'statements' is a CodeStatement array.
CodeStatement[] statementArray = new CodeStatement[collection.Count];
collection.CopyTo( statementArray, 0 );

// Retrieves the count of the items in the collection. 
int collectionCount = collection.Count;

// Inserts a CodeStatement at index 0 of the collection.
collection.Insert( 0, new CodeCommentStatement("Test comment statement") );

// Removes the specified CodeStatement from the collection.
collection.Remove( testStatement );

// Removes the CodeStatement at index 0.
