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

public class CodeVariableReferenceExpression : CodeExpression

The CodeVariableReferenceExpression type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeVariableReferenceExpression()Initializes a new instance of the CodeVariableReferenceExpression class.
Public methodCodeVariableReferenceExpression(String)Initializes a new instance of the CodeVariableReferenceExpression class using the specified local variable name.

Public propertyUserDataGets the user-definable data for the current object. (Inherited from CodeObject.)
Public propertyVariableNameGets or sets the name of the local variable to reference.

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.)

CodeVariableReferenceExpression can be used to represent a reference to a local variable.

The VariableName property specifies the name of the local variable to reference.

Use CodeFieldReferenceExpression to reference a field. Use CodePropertyReferenceExpression to reference a property. Use CodeEventReferenceExpression to reference an event.

The following example code demonstrates use of a CodeVariableReferenceExpression to refer to a local variable.

CodeVariableReferenceExpression variableRef1 =
    new CodeVariableReferenceExpression("TestVariable");

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

//    TestVariable
