Examples

This example demonstrates using a CodeEntryPointMethod to indicate the method to start program execution at.

// Builds a Hello World Program Graph using System.CodeDom objects
static CodeCompileUnit^ BuildHelloWorldGraph()
{
   
   // Create a new CodeCompileUnit to contain the program graph
   CodeCompileUnit^ CompileUnit = gcnew CodeCompileUnit;
   
   // Declare a new namespace object and name it
   CodeNamespace^ Samples = gcnew CodeNamespace( "Samples" );
   
   // Add the namespace object to the compile unit
   CompileUnit->Namespaces->Add( Samples );
   
   // Add a new namespace import for the System namespace
   Samples->Imports->Add( gcnew CodeNamespaceImport( "System" ) );
   
   // Declare a new type object and name it
   CodeTypeDeclaration^ Class1 = gcnew CodeTypeDeclaration( "Class1" );
   
   // Add the new type to the namespace object's type collection
   Samples->Types->Add( Class1 );
   
   // Declare a new code entry point method
   CodeEntryPointMethod^ Start = gcnew CodeEntryPointMethod;
   
   // Create a new method invoke expression
   array<CodeExpression^>^temp = {gcnew CodePrimitiveExpression( "Hello World!" )};
   CodeMethodInvokeExpression^ cs1 = gcnew CodeMethodInvokeExpression( gcnew CodeTypeReferenceExpression( "System.Console" ),"WriteLine",temp );
   
   // Add the new method code statement
   Start->Statements->Add( gcnew CodeExpressionStatement( cs1 ) );
   
   // Add the code entry point method to the type's members collection
