R Type Provider


Namespace: RProvider

This interface can be used for providing new convertors that can convert R values to .NET types. The converter is used whenever the users calls the se.GetValue<'TOutType>() on a SymbolicExpression value returned from R provider.

Instance members

Instance memberDescription
Signature: SymbolicExpression -> Option<'TOutType>
Modifiers: abstract

The method is called when the user calls GetValue<'TOutType>() on a SymbolicExpression value returned from the R provider.


To use this interface, you need to write a plugin (YourPlugin.Plugin.dll) that exports an implementation of this interface using MEF. The method Convert of the interface can return None when the conversion is not possible.
