Describes a lambda expression. This captures a block of code that is similar to a .NET method body.
Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Body||Gets the body of the lambda expression.|
|CanReduce||Indicates that the node can be reduced to a simpler node. If this returns true, Reduce() can be called to produce the reduced form. (Inherited from Expression.)|
|Name||Gets the name of the lambda expression.|
|NodeType||Returns the node type of this Expression. (Overrides Expression.NodeType.)|
|Parameters||Gets the parameters of the lambda expression.|
|ReturnType||Gets the return type of the lambda expression.|
|TailCall||Gets the value that indicates if the lambda expression will be compiled with the tail call optimization.|
|Type||Gets the static type of the expression that this Expression represents. (Overrides Expression.Type.)|
|Accept||Dispatches to the specific visit method for this node type. For example, MethodCallExpression calls the VisitMethodCall. (Inherited from Expression.)|
|Compile()||Produces a delegate that represents the lambda expression.|
|Compile(DebugInfoGenerator)||Produces a delegate that represents the lambda expression.|
|CompileToMethod(MethodBuilder)||Compiles the lambda into a method definition.|
|CompileToMethod(MethodBuilder, DebugInfoGenerator)||Compiles the lambda into a method definition and custom debug information.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Reduce||Reduces this node to a simpler expression. If CanReduce returns true, this should return a valid expression. This method can return another node which itself must be reduced. (Inherited from Expression.)|
|ReduceAndCheck||Reduces this node to a simpler expression. If CanReduce returns true, this should return a valid expression. This method can return another node which itself must be reduced. (Inherited from Expression.)|
|ReduceExtensions||Reduces the expression to a known node type (that is not an Extension node) or just returns the expression if it is already a known type. (Inherited from Expression.)|
|ToString||Returns a textual representation of the Expression. (Inherited from Expression.)|
|VisitChildren||Reduces the node and then calls the visitor delegate on the reduced expression. The method throws an exception if the node is not reducible. (Inherited from Expression.)|
The type represents a lambda expression in the form of an expression tree. The Expression(TDelegate) type, which derives from and captures the type of the lambda expression more explicitly, can also be used to represent a lambda expression. At runtime, an expression tree node that represents a lambda expression is always of type Expression(TDelegate).
Use the Lambda factory methods to create a object.
