Examples

The following example code uses a CodeDelegateCreateExpression to create a delegate.

// Defines a delegate creation expression that creates an EventHandler delegate pointing to a method named TestMethod.
CodeDelegateCreateExpression^ createDelegate1 = gcnew CodeDelegateCreateExpression( gcnew CodeTypeReference( "System.EventHandler" ),gcnew CodeThisReferenceExpression,"TestMethod" );

// Attaches an EventHandler delegate pointing to TestMethod to the TestEvent event.
CodeAttachEventStatement^ attachStatement1 = gcnew CodeAttachEventStatement( gcnew CodeThisReferenceExpression,"TestEvent",createDelegate1 );

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:
//     this.TestEvent += new System.EventHandler(this.TestMethod);
// Defines a delegate creation expression that creates an EventHandler delegate pointing to a method named TestMethod.
CodeDelegateCreateExpression createDelegate1 = new CodeDelegateCreateExpression( 
new CodeTypeReference( "System.EventHandler" ), new CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "TestMethod" );                                
// Attaches an EventHandler delegate pointing to TestMethod to the TestEvent event.
CodeAttachEventStatement attachStatement1 = new CodeAttachEventStatement( new CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "TestEvent", createDelegate1 );

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

//     this.TestEvent += new System.EventHandler(this.TestMethod);
' Defines a delegate creation expression that creates an EventHandler delegate pointing to TestMethod.
Dim createDelegate1 As New CodeDelegateCreateExpression(New CodeTypeReference("System.EventHandler"), New CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "TestMethod")

' Attaches an EventHandler delegate pointing to TestMethod to the TestEvent event.
Dim attachStatement1 As New CodeAttachEventStatement(New CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "TestEvent", createDelegate1)

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

'     AddHandler TestEvent, AddressOf Me.TestMethod

Remarks

CodeDelegateCreateExpression represents code that creates a delegate. CodeDelegateCreateExpression is often used with CodeAttachEventStatement or CodeRemoveEventStatement to represent an event handler to attach or remove from an event.

The DelegateType property specifies the type of delegate to create. The TargetObject property indicates the object that contains the event-handler method. The MethodName property indicates the name of the event-handler method whose method signature matches the method signature of the delegate.

In C#, a delegate creation expression is typically of the following form: new EventHandler(this.HandleEventMethod). In Visual Basic, a delegate creation expression is typically of the following form: AddressOf Me.HandleEventMethod.

Constructors

CodeDelegateCreateExpression()
