RegexCompilationInfo Class

Provides information about a regular expression that is used to compile a regular expression to a stand-alone assembly.


Namespace:  System.Text.RegularExpressions
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public class RegexCompilationInfo

The RegexCompilationInfo type exposes the following members.

Public methodRegexCompilationInfoInitializes a new instance of the RegexCompilationInfo class that contains information about a regular expression to be included in an assembly.

Public propertyIsPublicGets or sets a value that indicates whether the compiled regular expression has public visibility.
Public propertyNameGets or sets the name of the type that represents the compiled regular expression.
Public propertyNamespaceGets or sets the namespace to which the new type belongs.
Public propertyOptionsGets or sets the options to use when compiling the regular expression.
Public propertyPatternGets or sets the regular expression to compile.

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.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

An array of RegexCompilationInfo objects is passed to the CompileToAssembly method to provide information about each regular expression to be included in the assembly. Each compiled regular expression that is included in the assembly is represented as a class derived from Regex. The properties of the RegexCompilationInfo type define the regular expression's class name, its fully qualified name (that is, its namespace and its type name), its regular expression pattern, and any additional options (such as whether the regular expression is case-insensitive).

You can instantiate a RegexCompilationInfo object by calling its class constructor.
