C#
To define C# as the target language in a template file :
#set( $env.language = 'C#' )
The information below shows the behavior of the generator when C# is the current target language.

Types conversion

The table below describes how model neutral types are automatically converted to C# types with potential impact due to attribute annotations.
Model type
C# type
with annotation
string
string String
@ObjectType
byte
sbyte byte SByte
@UnsignedType @ObjectType
short
short ushort Int16
@UnsignedType
@ObjectType
int
int uint Int32
@UnsignedType
@ObjectType
long
long
ulong
Int64
@UnsignedType
@ObjectType
decimal
decimal

@ObjectType
float
float Single
@ObjectType
double
double Double
@ObjectType
boolean
bool Boolean
@ObjectType
date
DateTime
time
DateTime
timestamp
DateTime
binary
byte [ ]

Annotations effects

  • @UnsignedType has effect only for byte, short, int, long
  • @ObjectType switches to .Net types ( System.Int64, System.Boolean, etc)
  • @NotNull no effect
  • @PrimitiveType no effect

Specific types

  • $attribute.fullType returns the C# System class full name for both "primitive type" and "object type" ( for example : System.String, System.Int16, System.Decimal )
  • $attribute.simpleType
    • for an "object type" returns the simple type name of the C# System class ( for example : String, Int16, Decimal )
    • for a "standard type" returns the usual type ( for example : string, int, uint, bool )
  • $attribute.wrapperType returns the C# System class associtated with the curren type

Literal values
