Definition

Creates a GotoExpression representing a continue statement.

Overloads

public:
 static System::Linq::Expressions::GotoExpression ^ Continue(System::Linq::Expressions::LabelTarget ^ target);
public static System.Linq.Expressions.GotoExpression Continue (System.Linq.Expressions.LabelTarget target);
static member Continue : System.Linq.Expressions.LabelTarget -> System.Linq.Expressions.GotoExpression
Public Shared Function Continue (target As LabelTarget) As GotoExpression

Parameters

Returns

A GotoExpression with Kind equal to Continue, the Target property set to target, and a null value to be passed to the target label upon jumping.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to create a loop expression that uses the Continue method.

// Add the following directive to your file:
// using System.Linq.Expressions;  

// A label that is used by a break statement and a loop. 
LabelTarget breakLabel = Expression.Label();

// A label that is used by the Continue statement and the loop it refers to.
LabelTarget continueLabel = Expression.Label();

// This expression represents a Continue statement.
Expression continueExpr = Expression.Continue(continueLabel);

// A variable that triggers the exit from the loop.
ParameterExpression count = Expression.Parameter(typeof(int));

// A loop statement.
Expression loopExpr = Expression.Loop(
    Expression.Block(
        Expression.IfThen(
            Expression.GreaterThan(count, Expression.Constant(3)),
            Expression.Break(breakLabel)
        ),
        Expression.PreIncrementAssign(count),
        Expression.Call(
                    null,
                    typeof(Console).GetMethod("WriteLine", new Type[] { typeof(String) }),
                    Expression.Constant("Loop")
                ),
        continueExpr,
        Expression.PreDecrementAssign(count)
    ),
    breakLabel,
    continueLabel
);

// The following statement first creates an expression tree,
// then compiles it, and then runs it.
// Without the Continue statement, the loop would go on forever.
Expression.Lambda<Action<int>>(loopExpr, count).Compile()(1);

// This code example produces the following output:
//
// Loop
// Loop
// Loop

Continue(LabelTarget, Type) Continue(LabelTarget, Type) Continue(LabelTarget, Type)

Creates a GotoExpression representing a continue statement with the specified type.

public:
 static System::Linq::Expressions::GotoExpression ^ Continue(System::Linq::Expressions::LabelTarget ^ target, Type ^ type);
public static System.Linq.Expressions.GotoExpression Continue (System.Linq.Expressions.LabelTarget target, Type type);
static member Continue : System.Linq.Expressions.LabelTarget * Type -> System.Linq.Expressions.GotoExpression

Parameters

type
Type Type Type Type

An Type to set the Type property equal to.

Returns

A GotoExpression with Kind equal to Continue, the Target property set to target, the Type property set to type, and a null value to be passed to the target label upon jumping.
