What are the Various ExpressionColumn Options

3 Jan 2020 / 1 minute to read

The following code illustrates various expression column options.

//1. Sets the operators in the expression.

//The computations are performed with level one operations done first.

//Alpha constants used with match and like should be enclosed in apostrophes ('). 

// *, / ,+, - ,<, >, =, <=, >=,match, like, in, between ,or, and 

// * operator used here.
ExpressionFieldDescriptor exp= new ExpressionFieldDescriptor("Expr1","[ColumnName] *2", "System.Int32");

//2. Sets the output/view type.

//Output in double type.
ExpressionFieldDescriptor exp= new ExpressionFieldDescriptor("Expr1","[ColumnName] *2", "System.Double");
