ICodeGenerator.CreateEscapedIdentifier(String) Method

Definition

Creates an escaped identifier for the specified value.

public:
 System::String ^ CreateEscapedIdentifier(System::String ^ value);
public string CreateEscapedIdentifier (string value);
abstract member CreateEscapedIdentifier : string -> string
Public Function CreateEscapedIdentifier (value As String) As String

Parameters

value
String

The string to create an escaped identifier for.

Returns

String

The escaped identifier for the value.

Remarks

CreateEscapedIdentifier tests whether the identifier conflicts with reserved or language keywords, and if so, returns an equivalent name with language-specific escape code formatting. This is referred to an escaped identifier. The escaped identifier will contain the same value but will have escape code formatting added to differentiate the identifier from the keyword. Two implementation examples are preceding the value with "@" or bracketing the value with "[" and "]".
