Represents a missing Object. This class cannot be inherited.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|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.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
The following example shows how to use to invoke a method with a default argument. To compile and run this code example, you must first compile the following Visual Basic code as a DLL assembly named Target.dll. Save the code as Target.vb. From the command line, use vbc /t:library Target.vb to compile the assembly.
Imports System Public Class MissingSample Public Shared Sub MyMethod(Optional k As Integer = 33) Console.WriteLine("k = " & k.ToString()) End Sub End Class
If you compile Target.dll in Visual Studio, by default the project name is used as the name of a namespace that contains the MissingSample class. Either remove the namespace from the Target project, or add a using Target; statement to the C# code (Imports Target in Visual Basic, using namespace Target; in Visual C++).
Visual Basic code is used for Target.dll because C# and Visual C++ do not support optional parameters in managed code. Optional parameters are not part of the Common Language Specification. Therefore, code that uses optional parameters is not CLS-compliant. For more information, see Writing CLS-Compliant Code.
When you compile the Visual Basic and C# versions of this code example, add references to Target.dll. For example, if you are compiling from the command line, use the /r:Target.dll option. The Visual C++ version of the code example already includes a #using statement for Target.dll.
