Public Class ExecutionScope

The ExecutionScope type exposes the following members.

Public methodCreateDelegateCreates a delegate that can be used to execute a dynamically generated method.
Public methodCreateHoistedLocalsCreates an array to store the hoisted local variables.
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.)
Public methodIsolateExpressionFrees a specified expression tree of external parameter references by replacing the parameter with its current value.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Public fieldGlobalsRepresents the non-trivial constants and locally executable expressions that are referenced by a dynamically generated method.
Public fieldLocalsRepresents the hoisted local variables from the parent context.
Public fieldParentRepresents the execution scope of the calling delegate.

The ExecutionScope type is used by the expression tree compiler, which is an internal component of the LINQ expression tree API, and by the dynamic methods that it generates.
