CodeTypeMemberCollection Class

Represents a collection of CodeTypeMember objects.

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

public class CodeTypeMemberCollection : CollectionBase

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

The following code example demonstrates the use of the CodeTypeMemberCollection 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 attributes at a specific index point.

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

// Adds a CodeTypeMember to the collection.
collection.Add( new CodeMemberField("System.String", "TestStringField") );

// Adds an array of CodeTypeMember objects to the collection.
CodeTypeMember[] members = { new CodeMemberField("System.String", "TestStringField1"), new CodeMemberField("System.String", "TestStringField2") };
collection.AddRange( members );

// Adds a collection of CodeTypeMember objects to the collection.
CodeTypeMemberCollection membersCollection = new CodeTypeMemberCollection();
membersCollection.Add( new CodeMemberField("System.String", "TestStringField1") );
membersCollection.Add( new CodeMemberField("System.String", "TestStringField2") );
collection.AddRange( membersCollection );

// Tests for the presence of a CodeTypeMember in the collection,  
// and retrieves its index if it is found.
CodeTypeMember testMember = new CodeMemberField("System.String", "TestStringField");
int itemIndex = -1;
if( collection.Contains( testMember ) )
    itemIndex = collection.IndexOf( testMember );

// Copies the contents of the collection, beginning at index 0, 
// to the specified CodeTypeMember array. 
// 'members' is a CodeTypeMember array.
collection.CopyTo( members, 0 );

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

// Inserts a CodeTypeMember at index 0 of the collection.
collection.Insert( 0, new CodeMemberField("System.String", "TestStringField") );

// Removes the specified CodeTypeMember from the collection.
CodeTypeMember member = new CodeMemberField("System.String", "TestStringField");
collection.Remove( member );

// Removes the CodeTypeMember at index 0.
