Examples

This example demonstrates using a CodeCastExpression to cast a System.Int32 value to a System.Int64 data type.

// This CodeCastExpression casts an Int32 of 1000 to an Int64.        

// targetType parameter indicating the target type of the cast.
// The CodeExpression to cast, here an Int32 value of 1000.
CodeCastExpression^ castExpression = gcnew CodeCastExpression( "System.Int64",gcnew CodePrimitiveExpression( 1000 ) );

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:
// ((long)(1000));
// This CodeCastExpression casts an Int32 of 1000 to an Int64.        
CodeCastExpression castExpression = new CodeCastExpression(
    // targetType parameter indicating the target type of the cast.
    "System.Int64",
    // The CodeExpression to cast, here an Int32 value of 1000.
    new CodePrimitiveExpression(1000) );    

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

// ((long)(1000));
' This CodeCastExpression casts an Int32 of 1000 to an Int64.		
Dim castExpression As New CodeCastExpression( _
    "System.Int64", New CodePrimitiveExpression(1000) )
    
' A Visual Basic code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:

' CType(1000,Long)

Remarks

CodeCastExpression can be used to represent an expression cast to a different data type or interface.

The Expression property indicates the CodeExpression to cast. The TargetType property indicates the type to cast to.

Constructors

CodeCastExpression()

Initializes a new instance of the CodeCastExpression class.

CodeCastExpression(CodeTypeReference, CodeExpression)

CodeCastExpression(String, CodeExpression)

Initializes a new instance of the CodeCastExpression class using the specified destination type and expression.

CodeCastExpression(Type, CodeExpression)

Initializes a new instance of the CodeCastExpression class using the specified destination type and expression.
