SymDocumentType Class

SymDocumentType Class

Holds the public GUIDs for document types to be used with the symbol store.

Namespace:  System.Diagnostics.SymbolStore
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public class SymDocumentType

The following code example demonstrates how SymDocumentType is used when calling DefineDocument.

using System;
using System.Reflection;
using System.Reflection.Emit;
using System.Resources;
using System.Diagnostics.SymbolStore;

namespace ILGenServer
   public class CodeGenerator
      ModuleBuilder myModuleBuilder ;
      AssemblyBuilder myAssemblyBuilder ;

      public CodeGenerator()

         // Get the current application domain for the current thread.
         AppDomain currentDomain = AppDomain.CurrentDomain;
         AssemblyName myAssemblyName = new AssemblyName();
         myAssemblyName.Name = "TempAssembly";

         // Define a dynamic assembly in the current domain.
         myAssemblyBuilder =
                        (myAssemblyName, AssemblyBuilderAccess.RunAndSave);
         // Define a dynamic module in "TempAssembly" assembly.
         myModuleBuilder =

         // Define a document for source.on 'TempModule' module.
         ISymbolDocumentWriter myDocument =
         myModuleBuilder.DefineDocument("", SymDocumentType.Text,

         Console.WriteLine("The object representing the defined document is:"+myDocument);

   public class CallerClass
      public static void Main()
         CodeGenerator myGenerator = new CodeGenerator();
