public interface CtAssignment<T,​A extends T> extends CtStatement, CtExpression<T>, CtRHSReceiver<A>
This code element defines an assignment. Example:
     int x;
     x = 4; // <-- an assignment
  • Method Details

    • getAssigned

      CtExpression<T> getAssigned()
      Returns the assigned expression on the left-hand side (where the value is stored, e.g. in a variable, in an array, in a field ...).
    • setAssigned

      <C extends CtAssignment<T,​ A>> C setAssigned(CtExpression<T> assigned)
      Sets the assigned expression (left hand side - LHS).
    • clone

      CtAssignment<T,​A> clone()
      Description copied from interface: CtElement
      Clone the element which calls this method in a new object. Note that that references are kept as is, and thus, so if you clone whole classes or methods, some parts of the cloned element (eg executable references) may still point to the initial element. In this case, consider using methods Refactoring.copyType(CtType) and Refactoring.copyMethod(CtMethod) instead which does additional work beyond cloning.
