Namespace:  System.CodeDom
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public class CodeMethodReturnStatement : CodeStatement

The CodeMethodReturnStatement type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeMethodReturnStatement()Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodReturnStatement class.
Public methodCodeMethodReturnStatement(CodeExpression)Initializes a new instance of the CodeMethodReturnStatement class using the specified expression.

Public propertyEndDirectivesGets a CodeDirectiveCollection object that contains end directives. (Inherited from CodeStatement.)
Public propertyExpressionGets or sets the return value.
Public propertyLinePragmaGets or sets the line on which the code statement occurs. (Inherited from CodeStatement.)
Public propertyStartDirectivesGets a CodeDirectiveCollection object that contains start directives. (Inherited from CodeStatement.)
Public propertyUserDataGets the user-definable data for the current object. (Inherited from CodeObject.)

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 the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

CodeMethodReturnStatement can be used to represent a return value statement. The Expression property specifies the value to return.

The following example demonstrates use of a CodeMethodReturnStatement to return a value from a method.

// Defines a method that returns a string passed to it.
CodeMemberMethod method1 = new CodeMemberMethod();            
method1.Name = "ReturnString";
method1.ReturnType = new CodeTypeReference("System.String");
method1.Parameters.Add( new CodeParameterDeclarationExpression("System.String", "text") );
method1.Statements.Add( new CodeMethodReturnStatement( new CodeArgumentReferenceExpression("text") ) );            

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code: 

//    private string ReturnString(string text)  
//    { 
//        return text; 
//    }
