Examples

The following code uses a CodeArrayCreateExpression to create an array of integers with 10 indexes.

// Create an initialization expression for a new array of type Int32 with 10 indices
CodeArrayCreateExpression^ ca1 = gcnew CodeArrayCreateExpression( "System.Int32",10 );

// Declare an array of type Int32, using the CodeArrayCreateExpression ca1 as the initialization expression
CodeVariableDeclarationStatement^ cv1 = gcnew CodeVariableDeclarationStatement( "System.Int32[]","x",ca1 );

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:
// int[] x = new int[10];
// Create an initialization expression for a new array of type Int32 with 10 indices
CodeArrayCreateExpression ca1 = new CodeArrayCreateExpression("System.Int32", 10);                        

// Declare an array of type Int32, using the CodeArrayCreateExpression ca1 as the initialization expression
CodeVariableDeclarationStatement cv1 = new CodeVariableDeclarationStatement("System.Int32[]", "x", ca1);

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

// int[] x = new int[10];
' Create an initialization expression for a new array of type Int32 with 10 indices
Dim ca1 As New CodeArrayCreateExpression("System.Int32", 10)

' Declare an array of type Int32, using the CodeArrayCreateExpression ca1 as the initialization expression
Dim cv1 As New CodeVariableDeclarationStatement("System.Int32[]", "x", ca1)

' A Visual Basic code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

' Dim x() As Integer = New Integer(9) {}

Remarks

CodeArrayCreateExpression can be used to represent a code expression that creates an array. Expressions that create an array should specify either a number of elements, or a list of expressions to use to initialize the array.

Most arrays can be initialized immediately following declaration. The Initializers property can be set to the expression to use to initialize the array.

A CodeArrayCreateExpression only directly supports creating single-dimension arrays. If a language allows arrays of arrays, it is possible to create them by nesting a CodeArrayCreateExpression within a CodeArrayCreateExpression. Not all languages support arrays of arrays. You can check whether an ICodeGenerator for a language declares support for nested arrays by calling Supports with the ArraysOfArrays flag.

Constructors
