Grammar.StgInit(Object[]) Method


The StgInit method initializes a strongly-typed grammar.

 void StgInit(cli::array <System::Object ^> ^ parameters);
protected void StgInit (object[] parameters);
member this.StgInit : obj[] -> unit
Protected Sub StgInit (parameters As Object())



Parameters to be passed to initialize the strongly-typed grammar.This parameter may be null.


A strongly-typed Grammar object (IsStg equals true) can return strongly-typed results (objects, rather than raw text) to a client application. For example, a strongly-typed grammar might return DateTime objects rather than raw recognized input.

You can implement strongly-typed grammars by attaching code to the rules of a grammar. As a recognition engine processes any given rule, taking as input the current partial results, the associated code is executed and the textual information becomes rich type objects. This allows a client to more easily make use of enhanced semantic checking, support for multiple cultures, and internal grammar logic.

Instances of strongly-typed Grammar objects are typically obtained from resources in an assembly as a Type of the Common Language Runtime (CLR). The localized types used to support different languages are examples of such Grammar objects.

Notes to Inheritors

If a strongly-typed grammar requires initialization, StgInit should be called in a constructor or an initialization method.
