public interface CtTargetedExpression<T,​E extends CtExpression<?>> extends CtExpression<T>
This abstract code element defines an expression which contains a target expression. In Java, it is generally of the form: targetExpr.targetedExpr.
  • Method Details

    • getTarget

      E getTarget()
      Gets the target expression. The target is a `CtTypeAccess` for static methods and a sub type of `CtExpression` for everything else.
    • setTarget

      <C extends CtTargetedExpression<T,​ E>> C setTarget(E target)
      Sets the target expression.
    • clone

      CtTargetedExpression<T,​E> 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.
