Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use the New(Type) method to create a NewExpression that represents constructing a new instance of a dictionary object by calling the constructor without parameters.

// Create a NewExpression that represents constructing
// a new instance of Dictionary<int, string>.
System.Linq.Expressions.NewExpression newDictionaryExpression =
    System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.New(typeof(Dictionary<int, string>));

Console.WriteLine(newDictionaryExpression.ToString());

// This code produces the following output:
//
// new Dictionary`2()
' Create a NewExpression that represents constructing
' a new instance of Dictionary(Of Integer, String).
Dim newDictionaryExpression As System.Linq.Expressions.NewExpression = _
    System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.[New]( _
        Type.GetType("System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2[System.Int32, System.String]"))

Console.WriteLine(newDictionaryExpression.ToString())

' This code produces the following output:
'
' new Dictionary`2()
