Remarks

Expression objects are typically used with views and searches to define the operator for the search. A TypedValue in a SearchCondition object is used in conjunction with an expression object to define an operand for the expression. The condition operator is encapsulated in the parent SearchCondition object.

There are several types of expressions. See the MFExpressionType enumeration for the complete list. The expression is created by using one of the "Set" methods provided. The method sets the expression type and other required parameters.
