LambdaExpression Class

Describes a lambda expression.

Namespace:  System.Linq.Expressions
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

public class LambdaExpression : Expression

The LambdaExpression type represents a lambda expression in the form of an expression tree. The Expression<TDelegate> type, which derives from LambdaExpression 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>.

The value of the NodeType property of a LambdaExpression is Lambda.

Use the Lambda factory methods to create a LambdaExpression object.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
